not CT
Sonja Kill hospital in Kampot has a good reputation despite the unfortunate name.

Even I know "Not CT". IMO Sonja Kill is too far for a real emergency.
What about the Provincial Referral Hospital ? There's a morgue there, which could be handy.

Just saw this on FB. There's probably one post a week like this one:
Hi, my first time to post on here and it’s to get others views and also I guess a kind of warning regarding CT clinic.

In January I had an accident clearly dislocating my shoulder in SHV. I was taken by ambulance to CT Clinic. Due to the severity of the dislocation I need to be given a general anaesthetic. After the relocation I was only spoken to by clerical staff who told me to keep the sling on for 3 weeks and the small amount of strapping over my shoulder on for 2 weeks.

I was due to come back to the UK around 3 weeks later and thought it a very good idea to get checked out by the NHS. So it turns out that not only was my shoulder dislocated but I had suffered 3 separate fractures and have pieces of bone floating about inside me. I’ve since had CT scan and been told that I will need extensive surgery to rebuild my shoulder.

Like I say I suppose the point of this post is to a) get others views on it and more importantly b) warn off anyone who might even be thinking about visiting there. (sorry if this is old/common news to many but I had to pass on my experience hoping it will stop someone else experiencing it)

I got sown up at the Vietnamese one. Perfunctory work with some local anaesthetic. Pretty cheap. If it's just a sawbones you need fine. Keep an eye on your valuables when out cold.
