Holiday clinic service on Buddha's Birthday
The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:

     The Hospital Authority (HA) spokesperson today (May 20) said that 12 general out-patient clinics (see table below) of the Authority will provide holiday service in the coming Tuesday (May 22) on the Buddha's Birthday holiday. Members of the public are reminded to make advance booking through the telephone system as usual for an appointment.  
     The spokesperson further remarked that 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 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 the holiday," the spokesperson said. The HA appeals to the public for understanding and co-operation while waiting for consultations. Non-urgent patients are advised to consider seeking consultation at general out-patient clinics, 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, browse the Primary Care Directory of the Department of Health at www.pcdirectory.gov.hk, or download the "Primary Care Directory" mobile app.
