Default The medical system

I've come on here to whinge.

HA so what else is new?

I have a head cold, and as I work in a call centre, I can't really afford to go to work.

What is the medical system like in your country?

A few years ago we were able to go and see a doctor same day for free.

Nowadays, you'd be lucky if you could FIND a free doctor let alone get an appointment this week.

I went to see a regular doctor, cost me $50 (of which I will get $36 back).

The guy was vietnamese and took one look at me and said u have hayfever.

I told him I know what a headcold is and I have one.

he stood up and goes "u are NOT a doctor, I know better" in barely understandable english.

The dickhead wouldn't give me a medical cert and I have to go back to work tomorrow.

What a waste of $50!

Pretty much same as you. Sometimes they would guess what you got over the phone and call in a script. Depends on how well they know you. No copays that way.

My family doctor has too many clients these days. For something like a cold I usually do a walk in. You got wait couple hours sometimes. However it's all free, paid for by my 35% tax rate
