Finding it hard to take time off to attend doctors’ appointments with your children? Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital
continues to support parents with the introduction of Paediatrics Night Consultations
, with the aim to help them achieve optimal childcare in the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong’s working environment. This new programme ensures that children will receive timely treatment from paediatric specialists, while parents can find comfort in working around their busy schedule to accompany their young ones to the doctors.
Balance between work and childcare for parents
Picture this: Daniel is a respected consultant of an international firm and a loving father to his 3-year-old daughter. On a Wednesday afternoon, he received a call from his domestic helper informing him of his daughter’s elevated body temperature, occasional chills, and shivering. With tight turnarounds at work and a wife also a working mother, he becomes increasingly apprehensive and decides to book an appointment with Gleneagles’ night paediatrics consultation, knowing his daughter will receive timely treatment without requiring him to take time off on short notice and having to endure possible negative judgement from his colleagues and clients.
Such working parents’ problems are often encountered by many in Hong Kong. Having to balance the enormous task of being a committed parent while building a career is challenging enough, especially so when your children suddenly fall ill during work hours. Paediatric illnesses require instant and timely treatments, with little predictability. What solutions do Hong Kong clinics offer?
