Accident and emergency services

This is a 24-hour service.

When you arrive at accident and emergency, you will be seen by the duty nurse to collect information and assess your illness or injury. Charges may apply to services provided if a hospital admission is not required.

In a medical emergency, it is important that you do not ‘self present’ to hospital. SA Ambulance Service emergency medical dispatch support officers can provide advanced first-aid advice over the phone while an ambulance is on its way to you.

Cost for emergency department service is according to health insurance status. A doctor who is called in to attend after hours will charge a fee.
