In conjunction with the trained doctors and nurses, and the highly and specialised emergency equipment, the Department provides rapid assessment and management of all the emergency and critical cases. At the Department simple incidents are also considered that do not require hospitalisation. The department collaborates with all specialty physicians, who are on-call in order to handle all types of cases at any time. The head of the Department is Dr. George Economou. The department every year treats more than 14,000 cases. The department has fully equipped ambulances for the immediate transportation of patients to our casualty Department or other facilities, as required.
