Holiday clinic services at Chung Yeung Festival
The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:

     The Hospital Authority (HA) spokesperson today (October 6) reminded the public that 13 general out-patient clinics (see table below) will continue to provide services on the holiday following the Chung Yeung Festival on October 10 (Monday). Members of the public requiring medical consultation can make advance booking for an appointment through the telephone system as usual.  

     The Accident & Emergency (A&E) Departments in public hospitals will also operate as usual during the holiday to serve patients with urgent medical needs. In view of the expected increase in A&E attendances during the holiday, the spokesperson said that priority treatment will be accorded to patients with critical and emergency conditions as assessed under the established A&E triage system.

     Since the queuing time for semi-urgent and non-urgent patients would likely be longer than usual, the spokesperson appealed to members of the public for their understanding and co-operation while waiting in the A&E Department for consultation. As an alternative, non-urgent patients are advised to consider seeking consultation at general out-patient clinics, clinics of private doctors or 24-hour clinics of private hospitals.

     Information on public holiday clinic services within the district will be posted up at prominent locations in all A&E Departments. To help find the appropriate family medicine doctor and related clinic service of their choice, members of the public are also welcome to call the HA Infoline (2882 4866) for information on holiday general out-patient clinic services, browse the Primary Care Directory of Department of Health at www.pcdirectory.gov.hk, or download the mobile App of "Primary Care Directory".
