How to register as a patient

The emergency department does not accept bookings. You can register by phone (tel. 040 860 8611) but the waiting time depends on how busy the surgery is.

Assessing the need for care

Your need for care will be assessed by the care personnel on the phone or at the emergency department. Patients with health problems that do not require urgent examination and treatment by a doctor are discharged with instructions on self-care or referred to the next available doctor’s or nurse’s appointment.

Nurse’s consultation

The specially trained duty nurses see patients at the emergency department on weekdays 8.00–16.00. The nurse may examine and treat patients independently, give care guidance and advice and, if necessary, they can consult a physician. The nurse serves patients aged 7–65 years.
