Clinic service during New Year Holiday
The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:

     The Hospital Authority (HA) today (December 28) announces that 13 general out-patient clinics (see table below) will remain open on the New Year holiday (January 1).  Members of the public are reminded to make advance booking through the telephone system as usual for an appointment. 
     The HA spokesperson added that the Accident & Emergency (A&E) Department in public hospitals will also operate as usual during the holiday to serve patients with urgent medical needs. As Hong Kong is approaching the winter peak season of influenza, coupled with the expected increase in A&E attendance during the extended holiday and the first working day following the holiday, A&E Departments will accord priority treatment to patients with critical and emergency conditions as assessed under the established triage system, while semi-urgent and non-urgent patients might have to wait longer for consultation.
     The spokesperson appeals 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 or clinics of private doctors. Members of the public are welcome to call the HA Infoline (2882 4866) for the service information on general out-patient clinics during the holiday, and also to browse the Primary Care Directory of the Department of Health at www.pcdirectory.gov.hk or download the mobile app "Primary Care Directory" to find the family medicine doctor and related clinic service information within the district.
     To facilitate public understanding of public hospital services during the winter surge, HA launched a designated page last Saturday (December 23) on its website (www.ha.org.hk/goto/wintersurge/en) and also the mobile app "HA Touch" to provide some key information, including A&E waiting times, A&E attendances, medical in-patient bed occupancy rates and hyperlinks to private healthcare services websites.
