Your Emergency Visit

At the Emergency Department, priority will be given to patients according to severity of condition. Hence waiting time to see the doctor may be longer than expected.

For non-urgent, non-critical conditions, please seek medical attention at your GP or Polyclinic. They can provide care and assist you if your condition requires an emergency visit to the hospital. 

Our team is committed to deliver the best possible care to every patient.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

At SKH Emergency Department (ED or A&E), our team of multidisciplinary Emergency Medicine specialists is experienced and well-equipped to provide 24-hour emergency care for patients with high risk injuries and critical medical condition.

As an Emergency Department, our priority is to attend to patients with critical conditions. 

For non-urgent treatment, longer waiting time may be expected. 

Although not evident to most visitors, a second, separate entrance is catered for SCDF ambulance trauma cases, providing a better walk-in ED patient experience and enhancing patient flow during an already stressful and vulnerable time.
