"Out of hours/walk in"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

Anything else?

I went to the walk in centre last night with my baby daughter who woke up at 3 am with a temp of 40, vomiting with a rash. The doctor I dealt with spoke to me like I was insane for daring to bring her. He made reference to the time of night several times and repeatedly asked me why I saw fit to go there in the first place. He reluctantly invited us to be seen when we spoke on the phone and I told him I'd already gotten in the car. It was appalling.
