Holiday clinic service on New Year holiday
The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:

     The Hospital Authority (HA) spokesperson reminds members of the public today (December 30) that 13 general out-patient clinics (see table below) under the HA will continue to provide services on the New Year holiday this Wednesday (January 1). Members of the public requiring medical consultation may make advance bookings for an appointment through the telephone appointment system as usual.
     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. Amid the winter service surge at public hospitals and the expected increase in A&E attendance on 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.
     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 the appropriate family medicine doctor and related clinic service of their choice, the public are welcome to browse the Primary Care Directory of the Food and Health Bureau at www.pcdirectory.gov.hk .
     To facilitate public understanding of public hospital services during the winter surge, HA has launched a designated page 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 a hyperlink to the websites of private healthcare services.
