Holiday clinic services on Chung Yeung Festival
The Hospital Authority (HA) spokesperson today (October 15) reminded the public that 12 general out-patient clinics (see table below) will continue to provide services on Chung Yeung Festival this Wednesday (October 17). Members of the public requiring medical consultation could make advance booking for an appointment through the telephone system as usual.
The spokesperson said 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 possible increase in A&E attendances during the holiday, 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 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.
Members of the public are welcome to call the HA Infoline (2882 4866) for information on holiday general out-patient clinic service. They can also browse the Primary Care Directory of Department of Health at www.pcdirectory.gov.hk, or download the mobile App of "Primary Care Directory" to help find the appropriate family medicine doctor and related clinic service of their choice.
