About WiSE Specialist Emergency
Who is Wise?
The Walk-in Specialist Emergency Clinic is a stand-alone facility offering Specialised Emergency care based in the community. WiSE provides immediate medical attention when an injury or illness that is considered non-life threatening. Filling the gap that exists between General Practitioners and busy Hospital Emergency Departments.
- Immediate access to Specialist Emergency Medical care
- Staffed only by experienced, senior Specialist Emergency Doctors (FACEMs)
- No appointment necessary. Walk-in
- On-site Radiology and Pathology with immediate results
- Comprehensive treatment provided on the spot
With mounting pressure on the public emergency health system and with approximately 70% of presentations to Emergency Departments in New South Wales not resulting in hospital admission, there existed a clear need for community-based specialist emergency medical care. As such, the WiSE Clinic has been established by senior doctors with an interest in the delivery of emergency medicine outside the hospital environment with minimal waiting times. At the same time, they saw that they could help reduce the pressure on busy hospital emergency departments, enabling hospital staff to focus on the most severely unwell patients.
What’s Our Vision At WiSE?
The WiSE Specialist Emergency Clinic hopes to become a first point-of-contact and filter for patients with acute health concerns. Our new concept in Specialised Emergency care aims to not only treat these conditions but improve the flow of patients between GP clinics, allied health professionals and complementary care, pathology and radiology services, specialist doctors and public and private hospitals. In doing so, our service has the potential to deliver seamless, patient-centered care; improved service and care for a range of patients; and a much-needed pressure release on the healthcare system.
