Out-of-hours Paediatricians & Access
We all live permanently on island and all within about 15 minutes from the clinic and 5 minutes from the main hospital in George Town. We run a permanent on call approach for deliveries and neonatal patients, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, and because we are a group of three, you never have to worry that we aren’t available in your hour of need.
We are all generally available for urgent matters for our own patients. However, if you are new or don’t know how to contact your paediatrician out-of-hours, you can call our Out-of-Hours Paediatricians on the dedicated out-of-hours number: (345) 326 4370
You can reach your own paediatrician on the following numbers:
- Dr Sara Watkin on (345) 326 7827
- Dr Jasmina Marinova on (345) 323 0870
- Dr Sarah Newton on (345) 925 7888
Our Out-of Hours Paediatricians
Having a team of 3 paediatricians, all of whom have admitting rights to George Town Hospital and all of whom deliver babies at both George Town and CTMH Doctors Hospital, means that we have unrivalled cross-cover at all times.
Paediatricians Rest Out-of-Hours
Just a brief note on the fact that our often super-human-like Paediatricians are also human and like all humans need some down time. That should NEVER stop you calling when you need to, or ever feeling bad about it.
However, we would kindly ask you to first think about degree of urgency and simply wait to normal hours for the matters that can easily wait. If you aren’t sure, then always call though. We aren’t trying to discourage you and it’s only becaue we are so available as out-of-hours paediatricians that we just kindly request the non-urgent stuff to be kept to the daytime. Thank you!
