Hong Kong has an advanced medical system. There are 13 private hospitals and more than 50 public hospitals in Hong Kong.
The standards of public hospitals are good, and it is easy and quick to see a doctor without an appointment. However, for higher standards of care, more personal attention and English-speaking staff, most expatriates prefer the private hospitals.
For emergencies, serious injuries or critical illness, please call 999. All hospitals have 24-hour emergency treatment. Ambulance will take the patient to the nearest public hospital.
