A local community hero is counting down the days until he receives surgery for his hip at a private health care clinic following a nearly five-year waiting period in the public sector.
While admitting he’s disappointed with the long wait time given for a surgery date, he said he can’t blame the hospitals and the hard-working staff.
He highlighted the toll COVID-19 has taken on the healthcare system.
