Emergency Care and Rapid Assessment

In an emergency, call Triple Zero (000)

Ambulance Victoria will undertake further assessments regarding transfer to hospital, and may sometimes access other services, such as the Virtual Emergency Department, to ensure the most appropriate care for your patient.
