The A&E department is an outpatient clinic, and a fee is charged for each appointment. Patients under the age of 18 are treated free of charge.

The A&E department operates 24/7 to treat patients with a life-threatening condition or who need immediate medical attention. Patients are treated in order of priority according to their treatment needs and the urgency of their case.

The A&E department shares its premises with a health centre that treats semi-urgent cases by appointment between 4 pm and 9 pm from Monday to Thursday.
