To the Editor: Access to timely, definitive management of kidney stones after initial short-term management in the New South Wales public hospital system has long been a source of frustration for urological surgeons and their patients. These patients will, for the most part, ultimately receive treatment that is successful. Although this may be reflected in final outcome data, the financial and personal costs associated with unacceptable delays between staged treatment episodes is unlikely to be documented.
