With mounting pressure on the public emergency health system and with approximately 69% 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.
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.
