I hate going at night because it's exhausting, I would prefer to see my gp during the day, but sometimes as a parent, u feel it cannot wait.
We do have the home doctor thing with our health insurance, but I've used them once and they took over 6 hours to turn up. No point if I'm worried about something 'now'.
With him saying his tummy hurt, I was worried he may have something inside I couldn't see or feel so thought perhaps they would do an X-ray to rule anything out but they didn't. So that's another reason I went there. We were up the Coast the whole day so that's why we couldn't get to our normal gp.
He is 4 and DS2 is 16 months.

Saying that though unless it's imminent life or death I now avoid our local hospital and drive the extra 10 minutes to the next closest who are far far better.

My local public hospital are pretty average, and the wait times in ED to be seen are ridiculous, so we go to the local private hospital. Don't know if that's an option for you?
The care we've been given has been amazing, and they always take us seriously.
Hugs, there's nothing worse than seeing your kids sick and feeling helpless to fix it x
