    This I like! 😀  All though our local emergency room seems to have a similar policy; there's a four-hour wait no matter what. I am sure this is deliberate. If you are sick enough, you'll wait the four hours. If you don't want to wait, you aren't sick enough, and should see your GP in the morning. Of course, life-threathening problems are treated at once. Almost always.
