Whether a wracking cough, spiking fever or drilling pain that keeps you up all night or a serious accident in the day, you can be assured that our team of experienced medical officers and trained emergency nurses are on standby at all times, day and night.
Patients who arrive are first screened on a triage system to assess the clinical severity of their condition. Patients in the most critical conditions will be given priority, hence there is no ‘first come, first served’ order. Where necessary, the consultant specialists on-call will be contacted to assist in the diagnosis and treatment.
The waiting time is estimated as follows:
RED: ImmediateYELLOW: Within 30 minutesGREEN: Within 90 minutes
In an emergency situation, please head to the A&E Department located at the Ground Floor, on the left side of the main entrance. The A&E Department is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
