Our expert says:
If your daughter goes to a provincial hospital, she will not be able to choose her doctor. The operation will be done by whoever is rostered for that day. You may also find that she has to go to the hospital in her area, as health services are structured in this way so that the load is spread rather than one hospital being oversubscribed. It is only in the private system that you have choices of doctor and hospital.
