WiSE SPECIALIST EMERGENCY CLINIC
As is always the case with children and babies, you don’t need a doctor or medical assistance until you need it, and in that moment you need it immediately. Up until that point it is rare that we give much thought as to what other options we have in the unfortunate event of an injury or should an emergency situation occur. For most of us, our first point of call would be the local hospital or medical center. Well, what if I told you Sydney sider’s there was another option… an alternative with little to no wait times and specialised immediate care for you and your children.
Let me introduce you to WiSE Specialist Emergency Clinic.
Located at Macquarie, this brand-new emergency facility is NOW OPEN.
A few months back the boys were suffering from Bronchiolitis and I began to notice that Jack was really struggling with his breathing. I could hear the rattle as he breathed in an out and decided it was time to see someone. Our first point of call was the local medical center where we waited for an hour and a half to have Jack seen.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am grateful that we have a health care system which allows such a thing to be possible. In fact, becoming a parent has given me a new appreciation of just how lucky we are in this country, many don’t have such a privilege. However also as a parent, nothing can compare to the desperation you feel in that moment.
The doctor did not feel confident releasing us without further observation, so off to Mona Vale hospital we went. As you might imagine, two hours waiting to be seen in Emergency at 7pm at night with a baby is a nightmare. All jack wanted to do was sleep. But amongst the buzz of people, flashing lights and beeping monitors – he would have to wait, and wait, and wait…
Well parents – the wait is over.
