Booking an Appointment with Dr Sara Watkin
New Booking Arrangements
I am excited to announce that I am realising a dream by opening my own clinic, organised and functioning how I feel a 21st Century, high quality, IT-enabled practice should run. I finish my work at Grand Harbour at lunchtime on Tuesday 12th March and, work permit pending, am available to my new clinic, Integra Healthcare Ltd, from Friday morning.
I am joined in the new practice by Dr Jasmina Marinova, also a paediatrician and neonatologist, who is already seeing patients at our new facility and who will cover me whilst the work permit addressed.
For a few days, it means we are suspending online bookings here whilst we transfer all existing bookings to our new system (imagine the nightmare of having two running concurrently…). However, you can still book by phoning the front desk of my new practice. We’ll also have online booking live again in a matter of days.
Please note, I am available as follows across this week:
- At Grand Harbour still until 1pm on Tuesday 12th March
- At Integra Healthcare, Grand Pavilion, West Bay Road, from 9am on Friday 15th March
- Between 1pm Tuesday and 9am Friday (maybe even sooner), urgent appointments will be seen by my colleague Dr Jasmina Marinova (but I will be available for any queries she may have too).

Main Clinic Times
I try to keep to the following set of times. However, as a neonatologist too, sometimes my times have to be amended due to deliveries and urgent hospital patients. You can request an appointment on any of these days.
Monday to Friday:
0900 – 1300 Morning Clinic
(last morning appointment is 1230)
1400 – 1700 Afternoon Clinic
(last afternoon appointment is 1630)
0900 – 1300
(last clinic appointment is 1230)
There is frequently availability to see me if you just turn up and I am always delighted to do my best to accommodate. Obviously booked appointments are seen at their booked time and so walk-in patients might need to be a teeny bit patient.
The beauty of Grand Harbour is that you can always walk in, see me if I am available, or, if not, make an appointment and go get a coffee or shop in the meantime. Hurleys is 2 minutes from our door, on foot!

Well-child, Developmental Checks & Immunisations
There are certain types of appointment that we have to prepare for too. Consequently, we ask that you schedule all well-child appointments, developmental checks and immunisations in advance so that we can give you and your child the best possible service and make sure we have everything you need ready for when you turn up e.g. the immunisation itself!
Some days are better for these scheduled appointments. The following are the very best days to have the greatest choice of times:
I live permanently on island and only 15 minutes from the clinic. Whilst on island, I am permanently on call for deliveries and neonatal patients, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
However, I am generally available for urgent matters, by phone (345) 326 7827, at all times and I know this is something my parents really value, especially new parents when everything seems a bit scary when it happens for the first time.
