Health Centres Extended Opening Hours

It is that time of year when hospital visits will increase due to the flu, dengue and other seasonal illnesses. This normally leads to longer waiting times and some overcrowding, particularly in accident and emergency departments. We ask for patience and understanding as our doctors and nurses work to cope with these seasonal illnesses.

You are encouraged to use your community health centers for mild symptoms and let your doctor or nurse determine if you should visit the hospital for further care. For your convenience, there are extended opening hours up to 10pm in a number of Health centers across the country.  

See below the health centres with extended opening hours.
