Pain Threshold on Increase as Hundreds Await Ops

Pain thresholds are on the rise and hundreds of Kiwis await elective surgery. According to this article by Martin Johnstone, in the NZ Herald no DHB in the country manages to treat all patients promised elective surgery within the required four months. There are some interesting details - like the level of disability threshold that is required. It would be good to get a clear view of what that threshold is: then consumers and insurers could make more informed decisions about the risks and what they need to do to provide funding for the care that they want.
