How does your treatment start ?
When you arrive in adult emergencies, either independently or by ambulance, you will be received by a specialist nurse. They will quickly assess your health condition based on your symptoms and indicators such as blood pressure, pulse and temperature. They will then determine the level of urgency and direct you to the most appropriate care sector. If necessary, they will give you a pill to relieve your pain.
Following this initial assessment, your details will be taken for registration. Then you will return to the care sector. If required, an assistant nurse or paramedic will remain with you.
What are the levels of urgency ?
The level of urgency determines the order in which patients will be treated.
