Winter Peak and Fee Adjustments at Whanganui Accident and Medical

Last year, particularly during the months of July to September, the Whanganui Accident and Medical (WAM) clinic experienced high numbers of patients presenting. There are various reasons for this, including seasonal illnesses, such as colds and flu. The trend is expected to repeat this year and if it does, patients may experience considerable waiting times at WAM. The busiest times at WAM are usually Monday and Friday, 9am to 4pm.
