Holiday clinic service on Buddha's Birthday
The Hospital Authority (HA) spokesman today (May 1) reminded the public that 13 general out-patient clinics (see table below) will continue to provide services on the holiday to celebrate Buddha's Birthday this Wednesday (May 3). Members of the public requiring medical consultations can make advance booking through the telephone system as usual for an appointment. The details of the holiday clinic service are available by calling the HA Infoline at 2882 4866.
According to the spokesman, the Accident & Emergency (A&E) Departments in public hospitals will also operate as usual during the holiday to serve the patients with urgent medical needs. The established triage system will ensure priority treatment for critical and emergency patients according to their clinical conditions. The queuing time is expected to be longer for semi-urgent and non-urgent patients as there may be more patients attending A&E departments during holidays. HA appeals to the public for understanding and cooperation while waiting for consultations. Non-urgent patients should consider seeking consultations at general out-patient clinics, private doctors or the 24-hour clinics of private hospitals.
“To facilitate members of the public to grasp the situation of public hospital services, HA will provide the information on A&E waiting time, key statistics such as A&E attendance, the medical in-patient bed occupancy rate and hyperlinks to private healthcare service providers on the website (www.ha.org.hk/goto/wintersurge/en) and the ‘HA Touch’ mobile App,” the spokesman added.
