Hospital Authority curtails service to fight the Covid epidemic

The Hospital Authority (HA) announced Sunday that Lady Trench General Out-Patient Clinic's evening clinic session would be suspended from tomorrow.

HA spokesman said the service curtailment focuses workforce and resources on enhancing further Designated Clinic and tele-consultation services for supporting patients confirmed with Covid-19 infection.

HA will continue to monitor the situation and service demand. The spokesman added that if the epidemic continues to deteriorate, further services will be curtailed to mobilise more manpower to fight the outbreak.
