Work Injuries

by Dec 24, 2018

Injuries at work do occur. As an employee or employer, time off work can be really difficult. No one has time to wait hours in your local hospital emergency department or spend days accessing various services and waiting for results.

The WiSE Specialist Emergency Clinic provides on-site initial assessment, diagnostics (x-ray, CT, Ultrasound) with immediate results and treatment of a broad range of medical conditions and injuries without having to refer you off-site.

For all life threatening conditions, please call triple 000 or attend your local public hospital. Wise does not accept ambulance.
