There’s a new alternative to waiting for hours in the emergency room at a public hospital, as our members and guests discovered at our July Business After Hours. If you have a non-life threatening illness but you need a hospital, head to WiSE (Walk in Specialise Emergency) Clinic at the corner of Talavera and Khartoum Roads in Macquarie Park (entry via Khartoum Rd). No waiting for hours – doctors are on hand to assess and treat you. A one-off fee of $200 covers scans, x-rays and anything else you may need; bloods and scans etc are processed immediately on the premises so you can get a quick result without waiting days. It’s a fantastic service. Our members and guests got a guided tour of the clinic, which opened in February, and its state-of-the-art equipment. Please find out more at the website to see how WiSE can help you when you need it.
Co-hosting this event was TRED, the nationally endorsed health care training college which is co-located on the premises and is set to expand internationally in the next twelve months. If you know of anybody seeking a career in the health care or childcare industry, TRED is your local training provider. TRED also has very well-equipped training rooms for hire if you need them.
