Medical first aid services

The medical first aid service provides necessary care for outpatients in case of sudden illness or deterioration in the health condition of a patient, which is not life-threatening, and does not require the immediate intervention of emergency rescue services. If there is a sudden illness or sudden change in the patient's condition at times outside the regular operation of GPs' surgeries and outpatient specialists, and they can not wait for an examination during normal office hours of a doctor or specialist, it is possible to seek help of the medical emergency services. However, it should be emphasized that the Medical First Aid Service is not intended for routine investigative or standard-treatment procedures, which may be obtained during the normal daily operation of medical providers. It is also not possible to exchange it for outpatient care which is performed by the relevant medical facilities during their specified office hours.
