SINGAPORE - Most public hospitals here raised the fees for their emergency services this year, as part of a periodic review to cope with rising costs. They now range from $116 to $132 for accident and emergency (A&E) attendances, up from $110 to $126 before institutions began raising charges starting at the end of April.

The fee is for a consultation with a doctor, as well as nursing care and treatment. It includes basic investigations such as urine or blood sugar tests, basic procedures such as putting on a plastic cast, simple suturing and wound dressing, and standard medication.
