Holiday clinic services for day following Buddha's birthday
The Hospital Authority (HA) spokesperson today (May 10) said that 13 general out-patient clinics (see table below) will provide holiday clinic services for the day following Buddha's birthday next Monday (May 13). Members of the public are reminded to make advance booking through the telephone system as usual for an appointment.
The spokesperson 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 seeking consultation at A&E Departments during the holiday. The HA appeals to the public for their understanding and co-operation while waiting for consultations. Non-urgent patients are advised to consider seeking consultations at general out-patient clinics, private doctors or the 24-hour clinics of private hospitals.
To help find an appropriate family 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, or browse the Primary Care Directory of Department of Health at www.pcdirectory.gov.hk.
