Emergency medical care facilities provide medical services to patients with an injury, sudden illness or flare-up of a chronic disease that requires urgent medical intervention and medical assistance required is beyond the competence of a primary care physician.

At least one physician and one nurse or physician's assistant provide medical services in emergency medical service points.

If there is no emergency medical service point near your location, you can go to a hospital admission department that provides the appropriate services.
