Most family practices in Hong Kong do not provide an out-of-hours service. Our doctors have always felt that it was in the best interests of our patients to provide an emergency service, and we have been doing so successfully for over 20 years.
This service depends on both the goodwill of the doctor and the common sense of our patients . The charges for this service are normally waived for all regular patients of our practices in need of urgent advice.
Please take time to familiarise yourself with how our system works and ensure that you have discussed fully with your doctor the best way of accessing their care in an emergency. Also make sure all relevant family members, including helpers, have access to our emergency numbers and understand what to do in an emergency.
