Quota on new case booking for Non-eligible children in October 2017

Since 1 April 2016, the Department of Health (DH) has implemented additional measures to accord priority of child health services to local children in its Maternal and Child Health Centres (MCHCs). A quota has been set for Non-eligible Persons (NEPs) at 120 new cases per month. DH may adjust the quota or withhold new case bookings of NEPs if necessary.

DH recommends children to receive immunisation in their usual place of residence for comprehensive protection against childhood infectious diseases. It is not recommended to receive vaccination during travel.

While all persons have to make prior appointment before visiting MCHCs for child health services, NEPs can only book an appointment through the telephone hotline at 3796 0861. Booking will be available starting from the first working day of each month.

The opening hours of this hotline are Monday to Friday from 9 am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm. If Black Rainstorm Warning Signal, Typhoon Warning Signal No. 8 or above is enforced, this hotline will be suspended. If the warning signal is lowered two hours or more before the normal time of closure, this hotline will resume normal function as soon as possible.

Below is the distribution of the quota set for MCHCs-
