"Care given when attending the Urgent Care Centre"

It was a terrific experience.
My teenager developed a swollen red foot which they brought to my attention in the evening one weekend. I knew from previous experience that taking my teenager to the ED at the larger hospital would mean a wait of hours and hours. There is always a doctor on call at Beechworth Health Service, and even though there is a fee it is worth paying to avoid the waiting. Once we presented to the urgent care centre the nurses were very caring toward my teenager and professional in their approach. The doctor was called and arrived within 15 minutes! He prescribed some antibiotics and we were on our way within half an hour. You don’t get that type of prompt service even if you have a pre-arranged appointment with your normal GP. Thank you Beechworth Health Service and Beechworth Surgery.
