The Emergency Department looks after people in an emergency.
An emergency is when an illness or an injury is serious and requires urgent treatment.
When you arrive at the Emergency Department, you will be seen by a triage nurse who will decide how urgent your situation is.
The order you will be seen will depend on how serious your emergency is.
The people who have the most urgent conditions will always be seen first.
It will not depend on the time you arrive in the Emergency Department. People with less serious conditions will have to wait until the doctor is free.
Sydney and Sydney Eye Hospital Emergency Department is open 24 hours per day, including public holidays.
