5.3.3 Accident & Emergency (A&E) Services​
16 public hospitals in Hong Kong provide A & E services. The registration fee for patients with HKID card is $180.  It includes medical consultation and medication.  A triage system is implemented in all A&E Departments so that patients with more urgent needs can receive immediate treatments. Patients are divided into five categories according to their medical condition: critical, emergency, urgent, semi-urgent and non-urgent. The priority of receiving treatment is based on the severity of the patients’ conditions instead of their registration time.  The A & E services are aimed for patients with genuine needs. This resource should not be abused.  Patients whose conditions are not so urgent should visit a public or private clinic.
