993 general practitioner (GP) clinics will be open at various times during the Chinese New Year public holidays from 9 February to 12 February 2024. The public may access the list of GP clinics and their operating hours through:

• The Ministry of Health’s (MOH) corporate website;
• The Agency for Integrated Care’s (AIC) website; and
• Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) webpage.

2. Those who feel unwell during the festive period, including children, are encouraged to visit their GP clinic for minor conditions. They are advised to make an appointment or call the clinics before heading down.

3. The public should only seek medical treatment at a hospital’s Accident & Emergency (A&E) department for serious or life-threatening emergencies, such as chest pain, breathlessness, and uncontrollable bleeding. 

4. To ensure that the 995 Emergency Medical Services can provide swift conveyance for those with emergency conditions, we advise individuals who are not experiencing life-threatening emergencies to refrain from calling 995. 

5. MOH wishes everyone a happy Chinese New Year and a healthy year ahead. We would also like to take this opportunity to remind the public to eat in moderation and continue exercising regularly to stay healthy over the holiday period.
