"By having access to Wagga GP after hours I don't have to go to the hospital emergency"

About: Wagga GP After Hours Service (Murrumbidgee Medicare Local)

(as the patient),

If it wasn't for the Wagga Wagga After Hours Service I would be in hospital 4-5 time more than I have to be. My condition usually gets worse on the weekends but I am able to go to the after hours GP instead of the hospital and get the treatment and antibotics that I need and without having to wait too long.

I wanted to share my experience so that this service can continue - we don't want to lose such an important and great service. By having access to the Wagga after hours GP I don't have to go the the hospital emergency which would take more time and take up valuable resources that are needed for actual emergencies.
