As parents, we can all agree that nothing is worse than having a sick or injured child who needs a trip to the A&E department. Seeing them cry, looking weary and pained from whatever they’re down with makes us wish that it were us suffering instead. But as we all know, kids getting sick and hurt is what kids do. They venture out into the world of school and the playgrounds, and bring home some new virus and yet another thing for us to worry about (because we need more of those!). Luckily for us, Mount Elizabeth Hospitals have a walk-in clinic that’s open 24 hours a day, with specialists AND paediatricians on standby – one less thing to worry about, don’t you think?
Does your child dread visits to the doctor?
Apart from getting our kids to wake up for school in the morning, we can’t think of anything they despise more than a visit to the d-o-c-t-o-r. Why not help ease their hospital/doctor phobia by making it fun? In the video below, watch how Mount Elizabeth Hospitals’ Doctor For A Day Speed Saves Lives’ event does exactly that!
Looking for a place to take your sick bub in the middle of the night but scared of the waiting times? Mount Elizabeth Hospital has 24-hour walk-in clinics with specialists and paediatricians on call, the wait may be shorter than you think…

As you can see in our video, local mummy Rae Yun is all too familiar with the the A&E department. Her son, JJ, had to be taken to the emergency room twice last in the last two years because he was breathless and wheezing. Had she known there were other options, she would have brought him to the 24-hour walk-in clinic at Mount Elizabeth. “It gives me peace of mind to know that there are paediatric specialists on call,” she says.
It’s tough dealing with a sick child, but the 24-hour walk-in clinics at Mount Elizabeth Hospitals are making it easier for the parents of Singapore.
