Help for When Your Kids are Sick on Holidays

21 Sep 2023

Whether you’re traveling to the other side of Australia, packing the car and hitting the road with the kids, or spending a few days away visiting family, it’s Murphy’s Law that someone in the family will get sick.

While you’re traveling, it’s easy for kids to pick up various bugs and germs so it’s important for you to be able to speak to a GP when you’re away from home. When children are exposed to new and unfamiliar environments, they can become more susceptible to contracting viruses and illnesses.

When you’re away, you don’t always have access to the medications and remedies you would normally use when your child is sick at home. There are also those instances when home remedies just won’t cut it. Being on holidays means you don’t have the luxury of time to wait to see if a treatment will work.

Comfort is Only a Phone Call Away

Not having access to a GP can prolong and worsen a child’s illness, so it’s important to get in contact with a trusted GP right away. Talking to a doctor and getting advice faster can make the difference between them getting better quickly versus only starting to feel better on the last day of the trip. From anywhere in Australia, you can easily visit Our Sage to speak with a doctor from a wide network of Australian-registered GPs.

Accessing a GP While You’re Away

Illnesses are never convenient when you’re on holidays so take comfort in knowing you can use Our Sage telehealth services and speak to a real GP within minutes.
