After hours medical care for children under 13
If your child requires urgent healthcare, call your own GP first as they know your family best. If you are advised to take your child to an after-hours clinic, the consultation will be free after 6pm for all children under 13 years of age.
Remember if your child is unwell, it's always best to seek medical attention sooner, rather than later. Don't wait to see if their condition gets worse.
Hospital Emergency Department
Hutt Hospital Emergency Department is open 24/7.
Emergency Departments are for conditions that can only be treated at hospitals. If you don't require urgent help see your GP first.
Patients in most urgent need are given priority treatment with those whose need is less urgent often having to wait a long time. The nurse may suggest that you see your GP or an after hours doctor if you do not require emergency treatment.
