In October 2017, I was walking into the city and passed a development site, a gush of wind below and a large piece of wooden hording came off its hinges and fell on me. As the hording was falling, I went into autopilot mode and twisted towards the sign, put my hand up to try stop it and this caused a spinal fracture. After over 6 months of diagnosis, I finally found a doctor who referred me to a fantastic specialist who was able to identify the problem. Within weeks after the official diagnosis, I was able to have the required spinal operation with no wait time.
Despite being nervous about having such a major operation, I felt extremely comfortable knowing that I was in the best possible private care. I had a few minor complications, causing an extended stay in hospital and this was made easy with the private system. Recovery was much more pleasant in a private facility, with my guests also enjoying the comfort.
One thing I have learnt in life, you get what you pay for. Private cover is something I will always have.
