Public Hospital Service Arrangements

The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:

     The Hospital Authority (HA) spokesperson said today (November 12) that due to traffic disruptions in various districts, some patients may not be able to attend their scheduled consultation. They can call the clinics to reschedule the appointments later and there is no need to worry and rush for the consultation appointments. Services at the Accident and Emergency Departments at public hospitals remain normal at the moment.
     At the same time, HA staff who could not report duty as scheduled should inform the supervisors concerned immediately for flexible staff deployment and contingency duty rearrangement. HA would like to express appreciation to staff who may need to work additional hours beyond their normal duty.
