The last decade has seen the introduction of freestanding emergency facilities, which provide an alternative to hospital emergency departments. The contribution made by these facilities to the clinical welfare of patients depends on their availability to deliver quality medical care without the need for frequent referral. This study describes the clinical experience of one such facility with pediatric patients and attempts to assess the quality of their care.
