Hmm wait for 4 hrs if it A & E hor,maybe possible leh,if u sway that day alot of patients and your condition not serious

But medical appt,zhun bo,i once went to nuh heart centre for appointment.The nurse told me suddenly got one in patient urgent,need operation,told me my appt have to reschedule.

In the end no need wait just change to the next nearest appt,the nurse won't let u wait so long one lah if they know doc busy
It's true. 9.15 am my CT scan I reach 9.05am waited till 11.30am dulan went to jiak

Den come back 12.30pm just nice nurse help check waiting list say my name next

In the end 1pm scan

Hospital opens 24 hours but everyone wants to visit at the same time. So waiting time long roh. You try go at 3am, confirm first one no waiting time.

After hours report sick wait even longer

Only nua place during silent hours is SAF medical centre

Can see medic half dressed, den still have to call the bah long long MO come over from bunk if got patient
