Standard appointment fee is not required, if you are

  • under 19-years old (ID required),
  • pregnant (upon presenting your pregnancy chart) or
  • in a life-threatening situation if followed by a direct treatment at the inpatient department;.

If possible, please bring with you an overview of earlier medical conditions and a list of your daily medication.

Please note, that there will be no transportation provided after checking out from the hospital. A check-out may sometimes occur during night hours – therefore you should be able to cover the transportation at your own costs.

Once you have arrived to our Department, you will receive a primary examination by our nurse. The nurse will determine your health condition and the urgency of medical care needed (there are 5 categories of patients  – red, orange, yellow, green and blue). In case your health-situation has changed to worse, while waiting for the appointment, don’t hesitate to check back to the nurse.
