Re: Hirslanden. Covid icu

Although it’s scary, they wouldn’t ask you to wait unless the risk of a bleed is quite low. The COVID numbers are already plateauing out and December is only 2 weeks away.
Other Kantons are less affected than ZH and the LUKS (Luzern) has some decent neurosurgeons but I doubt you would get non-emergency surgery there any faster either, although you can always try and phone.
Maybe just regularly phone and check in with the secretaries at the clinic where you had your appointments so they definitely have you on their radar and are aware of the stress the waiting is causing you. Even an email expressing your concerns can just make them more aware of it and prioritize your case as much as possible.
Thank you for making this post as well, maybe it will help a few people see one of the many real negative effects of this pandemic and stop some of the christmas market, ski-holiday, big gettogether, face-mask whingeing. The hope dies last.
