Waiting for Surgery

Have you spoken to your surgeon about the wait time for surgery but still have questions or concerns? Every hospital has someone you can call or email about wait time issues that have not been addressed by your surgeon. To find out who to contact for your hospital, find the name of the person in the list below for the district health authority where the hospital is located. You should also advise your family doctor of any change in your health condition while waiting for surgery.
