Tuen Ng Festival holiday clinic service arrangements
The Hospital Authority (HA) spokesperson today (May 28) reminded the public that 13 general out-patient clinics (see table below) will continue to provide services on the Tuen Ng Festival holiday this Tuesday (May 30). Members of the public requiring medical consultation can make advance booking through the telephone system as usual for an appointment. The details of the holiday clinic services are available by calling the HA Infoline at 2882 4866.
According to the spokesperson, the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Departments in public hospitals will also operate as usual during the holiday to serve patients with urgent medical needs. 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 the holiday. The established triage system will ensure priority treatment for critical and emergency patients according to their clinical conditions. The HA appeals to the public for understanding and co-operation 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.
Information on public holiday clinic services within the district will be posted 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 browse the Primary Care Directory of the Department of Health at www.pcdirectory.gov.hk, or download the mobile app "Primary Care Directory".
