What to expect: When you arrive, you will be greeted by a receptionist and triaged (sorted) by a nurse into a priority stream depending on the potential severity of your complaint. You will then be assessed by a doctor or nurse practitioner who will be able to advise you about your prognosis and treatment if necessary. The Emergency Department aims to assess, treat and either admit or discharge its patients within 4 hours of attendance.
