Limited bed spaces in A&Es are unable to meet surging demands in A&E visits, even before they need to accommodate COVID-19 patients.
As a result, conditions not classified under these life-threatening emergencies had to wait as long as 7-8 hours just to see a doctor.
In reality, A&E is not the only place to go when faced with an injury or illness.
Non-life-threatening conditions (e.g cough, flu, fever, headache, diarrhoea) that require immediate medical care can be attended to by a house call doctor.
At Speedoc, our house-call doctors are trained in urgent care for all stages of life.
They can reach your place within an hour so you’ll get to skip the hassle of visiting and waiting at the A&E in hospitals.
