At the A&E, the dedicated team of doctors and nurses are specially trained for emergency situations. They will evaluate the situation immediately using the triage method. The most severe cases with life-threatening conditions will be our topmost priority, while the rest may need to wait, depending on the number of patients at the A&E.
