Noon Time Outpatient Service Starts from March 14 - THE FIFTH AFFILIATED HOSPITAL,SUN YAT-SEN UNIVERSITY


Noon Time Outpatient Service Starts from March 14

From March 14, the Fifth Affiliated Hospital starts providing outpatient services from 12:00 to 14:30 (weekends and holidays included). This change will help to offer qualified and convenient services to patients and shorten their long waiting time at noon. As outpatient services are provided from morning to afternoon without interruption, citizens can go to see the doctor at lunch break. Currently, the departments that provide outpatient services at noon include Department of Internal Medicine, Department of General Surgery, Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics and Department of Pediatrics. In addition, services units including registration office, cashier’s office, outpatient pharmacy and medical laboratory are also open from 12:00 to 14:30 to meet the needs of outpatient services at noon time.


The outpatient services at noon time can significantly reduce the patients’ waiting time and their transportation cost. Working people and students can go to the hospital during noon break and emergency patients can receive special clinic service rather than general emergency service at noon. Departments of the hospital will at the same time collect patients’ opinions and suggestions so as to enhance the efficiency of the noon time procedures and bring convenience to outpatients.
