      Emergency medical care

      Hi all

      In the event of a medical emergency, what are the best faciliities to go to? I live in Glenelg North and whilst I am aware of the Glenelg hospital etc, I wouldn't know where to go for casualty/emergency treatment, should I need to (and let's hope its not something I need to do anytime soon )

      I would say that Flinders Medical Centre, Bedford park might be easiest for you to get to. 24 hour A&E department and comprehensive medical backup facilities too.

      From various experiences, the A&E isn't that nice, it does the job and is busy (probably like most A&E depts) but the wards are fab

      Edit: Also a quick reminder about ambulance insurance. If you have private medical cover, it can be a cheap inclusion with that, if not, post office does cover with SA ambulance at about $125 per year per family. Cost of calling an ambulance without ambo cover 0 $600-850!!!
