NHS waiting list for hip replacement in Scotland
I have just been diagnosed and been told 40 weeks to see specialist. I had a work health policy that covers private assessments so used it and saw one in a week. He told me I need an operation on both and if I wait for NHS it will be a minimum of two years. I wonder if I borrow money and get the worse hip done will I still be eligible to get the 2nd on NHS? I am 51 with three teenagers and not keen on the quick decline I am experiencing struggling putting sock on and walking far can't run.
