136

20th September 2021 – (Hong Kong) The Hospital Authority spokesperson today said that 14 general out-patient clinics (see table below) will provide services on the day following the Mid-Autumn Festival. Members of the public are reminded to make advance bookings for appointments either through the Telephone Appointment System or the “Book GOPC” function in the “HA Go” mobile application.

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 celebrating 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 for respiratory symptoms.

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 atwww.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 general out-patient clinics (see table below) within the specified time. The public can also obtain specimen collection packs at selected MTR stations. For details, please visit the website: www.coronavirus.gov.hk/eng/early-testing.html.
