Accident and emergency
A 24-hour accident and emergency service is staffed by a doctor from the co-located medical practice.
When you arrive at accident and emergency, you will be seen by the duty nurse to collect information and assess your illness or injury. This process will help determine what treatment you may need. There is a doctor on call, if 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.
Visiting hours are negotiable so please ask nursing staff.
There is disabled parking onsite.
The building is wheelchair accessible and there are toilets for people with disability. Please ask at Reception.
