Knee treatment

Hi,

I am British and working in Switzerland for 6 weeks. I have a lot of pain around my left knee. There is no prospect of UK treatment until late August.

How can I get an expert to diagnose my problem and maybe arrange an x-ray/scan in Switzerland?

I have insurance for injuries at work and also separate medical insurance.

Thank you for any advice.

Was this an accident, I assume it happened since you were working in CH, if so it will be covered by accident insurance. Unless it's an illness it wont be covered by Swiss health insurance.
