General out-patient clinic services for Chung Yeung Festival
The Hospital Authority spokesperson today (October 12) said that 14 general out-patient clinics (GOPCs) (see table below) will provide services on the Chung Yeung Festival (October 14). Members of the public can make advance bookings for appointments either through the telephone appointment system or the "Book GOPC" function in the "HA Go" mobile application as usual.
The spokesperson remarked that the Accident and Emergency Departments in public hospitals will also operate as usual during the holiday to serve patients with urgent medical needs. Non-urgent patients are advised to consider seeking consultation at general out-patient clinics, private doctors or the 24-hour clinics of private hospitals. As the Emergency Response Level has been activated in public hospitals in light of the COVID-19 epidemic, infection control measures have been enhanced with universal masking for all persons entering public hospitals and clinics.
In addition, the spokesperson urged the public to continue to stay vigilant when hiking or grave sweeping during the holiday. They should maintain personal and environmental hygiene to prevent infection and spreading the virus in the community. The public should seek medical advice early if they experience respiratory symptoms. Moreover, members of the public should also receive COVID-19 vaccination and seasonal influenza vaccination as early as possible.
To choose a suitable family doctor and related clinic service, members of the public are welcome to browse the Primary Care Directory of the Food and Health Bureau at www.pcdirectory.gov.hk. In addition, members of the public can obtain specimen collection packs for COVID-19 tests during the holiday or submit specimens at nine GOPCs (see table below) within the specified time. The public can also obtain specimen collection packs at the selected MTR stations. For details, please visit the website: www.coronavirus.gov.hk/eng/early-testing.html.
