Walk-In Specialist Emergency
Patients requiring immediate medical attention when an accident or emergency requires more than a GP visit, but is considered non-life threatening or unlikely to require admission to hospital are encouraged to access our Specialist Emergency physician.
The Walk-in Specialist Emergency Clinic is staffed by Specialist Emergency Physicians (FACEMS). Emergency medicine is a recognised speciality within medicine where the focus is on immediate diagnosis, resuscitation and treatment of patients with an acute medical condition. Our Specialist Emergency Physicians known also as FACEMs (Fellows of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine) have completed specialist training and passed their Fellowship or ‘Consultant’ Exam in Emergency Medicine. The WiSE Clinic is a one-stop shop allowing our physicians to provide timely, seamless assessment, diagnosis and treatment, all under one roof.
WiSE Specialist Emergency Clinic provides immediate specialist care for but not limited to:
- Falls/trips, excluding major traumas
- Complicated lacerations
- Suspected fractures
- Sporting injuries
- Problems in early pregnancy
- Fevers – adult and child
- Atypical chest pains
- Suspected DVT/PE

Please also note that this is not a replacement for your GP visits. As emergency physicians, we do not manage longer term health issues (such as monitoring chronic conditions, developing holistic care plans, medication management, etc).
