DH clinics service arrangement
     The Department of Health (DH) today (February 1) announced further adjustments of its services following its earlier announcement on service adjustment in response to the latest developments of the novel coronavirus infection.
  • The services of three Woman Health Centres under the Family Health Service of the DH will be suspended starting from Monday (February 3). The staff of the centres will make separate arrangements for users with prior appointments.
  • AIDS Hotline 2780 2211 and Gay Men HIV Testing Hotline 2117 1069 of the DH's AIDS Counselling and Testing Service will continue to provide telephone counselling services. However, both telephone and online bookings for HIV testing have been suspended until further notice. Those who have already made an appointment for HIV testing by phone or online will not be affected. For enquiries, please contact the above hotlines.

     In addition, in order to enhance infection control measures including minimising pedestrian flows and social contacts, the DH advised that clients' family members and friends should avoid accompanying the clients to visit Maternal and Child Health Centres (MCHCs) or other clinics/facilities unless there are special reasons to do so. The DH also advised that:
  • No more than two parents may accompany 1 month old or below newborn baby to MCHCs; and
  • No more than one parent/relative/friend may accompany the service user to clinics/facilities.
