Accident and emergency services

A 24 hour seven day a week Accident and Emergency Department is available. The hospital is supported by Senior Medical Officers who are available 7 days a week.

Millicent and District Hospital and Health Services has access to the specialised video conferencing system, SAVES. This technology provides patients in small country sites with video access to a doctor or specialist in metropolitan Adelaide for overnight clinical support, between the hours of 11pm and 7am seven days a week. The doctor or specialist can then recommend treatment, medication, referral, admission or transfer as required.

All hospitals in the South East work collaboratively to support the patient care needs of the region. Patients may at times require a higher level of care and as such may be required transfer to the larger regional hospital based at Mount Gambier or to a metropolitan health service using MedStar emergency retrieval service or the Rural Flying Doctor Service.

This initiative ensures patients in regional areas can get 24/7 access to emergency care.

In a medical emergency call 000 and await ambulance attendance.

When you arrive at the Millicent and Districts Hospital and Health Service Accident and Emergency service, you will be seen by a nurse to collect information and assess your illness or injury prior to seeing a doctor.
