I had a serious bout of food poisoning and was losing fluid over several days. My son took me to After Hours Clinic as I was worsening. It was found that I was severely dehydrated and that my kidneys were shutting down. Doctor got an ambulance to take me to QEII Hospital whereby they confirmed doctor’s opinion. I sincerely believe that this “After Hours” service saved my life, and saved me from complete kidney failure.
I had 6 bags of fluid into my arm not including drinking 2 litres of fluid. My Kidneys are normal now, and I feel good.
With no “After Hours” service I believe I may have died or had long term kidney treatment at QEII Hospital.
