Chung Yeung Festival holiday clinic service
The Hospital Authority (HA) spokesperson today (October 26) reminded the public that the services of 13 general out-patient clinics (see table below) will continue during the Chung Yeung Festival holiday this Saturday (October 28). Patients requiring medical consultation can make advance booking for an appointment through the telephone system as usual.
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. In view of the expected increase in A&E attendances during the holiday, the spokesperson said that priority treatment would 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 will likely be longer than usual, the spokesperson appealed to the public for 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 the 24-hour clinics of private hospitals.
To help find the appropriate family medicine doctor and related clinic service of their choice, members of the public are welcome to call the HA Infoline (2882 4866) for information on holiday general out-patient clinic service, and also to browse the Primary Care Directory of Department of Health at www.pcdirectory.gov.hk, or download the mobile App of "Primary Care Directory".
