Emergencies can happen at any time so it is important to know where to take your loved one should it ever happen to them.

Your default should not be to rush to the nearest hospital or A&E near me, especially for non-life-threatening situations. It doesn’t only rack up quite an expensive medical bill but it also clogs up the emergency rooms. Worse, you might find yourself to be waiting for hours in line due to the priority scheme.

One way to prepare for late-night emergencies is to know which clinics near you are open beyond the regular hours. To help, we have prepared a list of 24 hour clinics in Singapore along with the fees and services you can expect should you ever need to visit one.

The treatment and care services offered at 24 Hour Clinics are the same as the ones offered in a normal GP clinic, only with consultation hours extended to 24 hours.

Among the services include:

  • Outpatient Medical Treatment (such as colds, headaches and minor burns)
  • Minor Surgical Procedures (i.e. wound dressing and drainage of abscess)
  • Diagnoses & Prevention of Chronic Diseases (such as hypertension, diabetes, anxiety etc.)
  • Women, Men and Child’s Health (including pap smear, STD/HIV screening and maternity care)
  • Vaccinations (for H1N1 and tetanus among others)
  • Health Screening and Education (such as Blood Count, urine tests and lipid profiles)
  • Antigen rapid test

 

Cost

At 24 hour clinics, expect to be charged more if you come after hours. A consultation fee can range from $80 to $130 with consultations costing $100 after midnight. Medication and other treatments come at an additional cost.

A&E charges around $120 to $160 for a standard visit. This covers consultation charges, diagnostics, treatment and 7-days worth of medication.

Waiting Time

At 24-Hour Clinics

Expect short to no waiting times at a 24 hour clinic. As such it is advised that if the condition is not severe, you can visit the 24- hour clinics nearest you. These clinics are well-equipped to cater to your medical needs.  

At A&E

There are four levels of priority in an A&E and this set up is to ensure that those with the most severe and urgent will be given the immediate attention they need.

It is advised that you only visit the A&E for life threatening conditions like those that fall under Priority 1 and 2. Those whose conditions fall under Priority 3 and 4 can rest assured that they will find the medical care they require at the nearest 24 hour GP clinic.   

  • Priority 1: Resuscitation and Critically-Ill Patients
  1. Heart attack, severe injuries and bleeding, shock, severe asthma attack
  •  Priority 2: Major Emergencies
  1. Major limb fracture or dislocation, moderate injuries, severe abdominal pain
  • Priority 3: Minor Emergencies
  1. Sprains, minor injuries, minor abdominal pain, vomiting, fever, rashes, and mile headaches
  • Priority 4: Non-Emergency
  1. chronic joint pains or skin rash, long-term nasal discharge, old scars, cataracts, removal of tattoos and sore throats

When choosing between a hospital’s A&E and a 24-Hour Clinic, it depends on the condition’s severity and urgency.

For conditions such as sprained ankles, fevers, nosebleeds, minor cuts, flu and

sore eyes, a 24-hour clinic are well-equipped to attend to your needs.

Meanwhile, broken bones severe pain, seizures or an injured elderly in need of urgent

medical attention would be best attended to at the nearest A&E.

Regardless of condition, you may choose to go to an A&E if your health insurance plan

covers these visits, however, if your condition is not life-threatening, you may end up waiting for hours. Those with more severe and urgent needs will be attended first. It would be much faster to go to a 24 hour clinic instead.

What to Do During a Late-Night Medical Emergency

If you ever come upon your loved one having a medical emergency, it is best to stay

calm so you can properly assess the situation. Grabbing your loved one and rushing to the hospital in a panic will do more harm than good.

Instead, take note of your loved one’s condition and the symptoms/injuries sustained from a fall or an accident so you know what to do next.  

 

When To Call For an Ambulance

  •  Life threatening Condition. Only call an ambulance if you think your loved one’s condition is life-threatening such as a stroke or a heart attack. Symptoms of these could be chest pains or difficulty breathing.

 

  • Not breathing. You should also call an ambulance if your loved one is unconscious or their pulse is undetectable. They may require CPR and you’ll be instructed through the phone on how to perform it as the ambulance rushes to you.

 

  • Unable to move the patient due to injuries.

If you cannot move your loved one due to the injuries they sustained, call an ambulance. The emergency staff know how to carry and lift patients without aggravating their condition.

 

  • Need assistance to go to the emergency room. If you or your loved one require assistance due to limited mobility or require support equipment such as oxygen and IV drip during transport, you may call a non-emergency ambulance to provide transport to the hospital.

 

What to Bring to the A&E/24-Hour Clinic

Bring your loved one’s personal identification and copies of medical records in case

they need to be admitted.  

 

What Happens After Dialing 995

If the situation calls for it, you may dial 995 for an SCFD ambulance. Dialling 995 is

only free if it is a true emergency, otherwise, you would be charged $274 at

the emergency department. 

 

You also cannot choose where the ambulance will take you as they will bring you to the nearest hospital so that the patient can receive treatment as soon as possible.  

 

Being Prepared to Deal With an Unexpected Medical Emergency

As emergencies can happen at any time, it is best to be prepared as possible. If you live  with an elderly loved one who suffers from a chronic condition and would benefit from supervised care, you may want to look into eldercare Singapore.

 

Through eldercare services, you can find set ups such as nursing homes and assisted

living where round the clock care and various amenities and elderly-friendly facilities are available to ensure your loved one’s comfort. 

 

On the other hand, if your loved one prefers to stay at home, hiring a live in caregiver Singapore can ensure they will have the attention and access to the specialized care they need.
