priority for appointments is given to those with underlying health conditions but you got to be in the public health system already.
I was recently suspected to have some form of cancer and the earliest public hospital appointment was 6 weeks away.
Needless to say, I went private and directly to a specialist surgeon, had a biopsy done the same day, and the results were negative. The cost was 8K.
Even if it was positive, I would have gone the private system first, then follow up through the public system.
There’s a govt hotline that you call to make an appointment at a govt clinicbut I’m sure you can google it. I put it in another thread. Will try to look for it later
