Direct to Hospital

There are a group of problems that are much better treated in a hospital.

This is because the hospital has a better degree of monitoring, has access to same day blood tests and results, has the ability to scan and has access to different routes of treatment – such as medication intravenously, oxygen driven medications (such as nebulisers) and clot busting medications.

If you have given us a history (an account) of symptoms that fit with these issues you may be directed straight to hospital – this is for your own safety and we expect you to follow our advice. Over the years – we have helped many patients in extreme situations but getting patients to the right place at the right time is key – minutes count when we are dealing with life-threatening problems.
