Book GOPC

Book GOPC
Q1.
I have never made appointment with the mobile app before. What should I do to use this service?
“Book GOPC” is a function of HA’s one-stop mobile app “HA Go” for members of the public to make GOPC appointment through this simple, time-saving and customised platform. To make appointment through “Book GOPC” mobile app, you may simply download “HA Go”, register and activate your account. Please click here for more details on account activation.
Q2.
Can I make an appointment beyond the next 24 hours?
The telephone appointment system and “Book GOPC” mobile app allow patients with episodic illnesses (e.g. influenza, colds, gastroenteritis) to reserve consultation timeslot available in the next 24 hours. Although episodic cases are usually non-urgent, we encourage patients to seek medical consultation as soon as possible. If appointment timeslot beyond the next 24 hours is offered, this may not meet the need of patients on receiving timely medical treatment. On the other hand, there may also be an increase in default rate and wastage of quota.
Q3.
Can I select my consultation timeslot?
To optimise the use of resources and avoid wastage of quota, the telephone appointment system and “Book GOPC” mobile app would identify the earliest available consultation session in the next 24 hours and allocate consultation timeslot on a sequential basis. If you do not accept the offered timeslot, you may give up the offer and choose to search for available quota in other sessions of the next 24 hours, such as morning, afternoon and evening. The system would allocate the earliest available timeslot in your selected session depending on quota availability.
Q4.
I forgot the time of my booked appointment. How can I check the details of my booked appointment?
Please call the telephone appointment system of the clinic with which you have the appointment and follow the instruction to enquire your appointment details. You may also use the “Enquire for self” option in “Book GOPC” mobile app to make the enquiry.
Q5.
I am a patient with chronic illnesses. Can I reschedule my next appointment with the mobile app?
In general, patients with chronic illnesses require persistent drug treatment to sustain their medical condition. Hence, sufficient drugs will be given until the next follow-up appointment offered by the clinic based on clinical needs. Therefore, if you need to reschedule your appointment, please contact the concerned clinic for arrangement. To ensure timely and appropriate follow-up care as well as individual medication needs, the clinic staff will make appropriate arrangement for you based on your clinical needs (e.g. medication needs).
Q6.
How can I cancel my appointment if I cannot attend as scheduled?
Please call the telephone appointment system of the concerned clinic or use the “Cancel for self” option in “Book GOPC” mobile app to make the cancellation as soon as possible, i.e. at least one hour before your scheduled appointment. The quota will then be released for booking by other patient so as to optimise the use of quotas. If you fail to attend an appointment for 3 separate occasions within 2 months at any GOPCs, you will be suspended from using the telephone appointment system and mobile app to make appointment temporarily. Please enquire at clinic in person if you would like to make appointment for consultation service.
Q7.
I have made a GOPC appointment successfully. Would the mobile app remind me of my appointment schedule?
To protect patient data privacy, “Book GOPC” mobile app will neither read nor collect any data from the user’s mobile device. The design of the mobile app allows you an option to add the GOPC appointment details to the personal calendar of your mobile device from the “Appointment details” page. Your personal calendar can remind you of the scheduled appointment according to your personal setup.
Q8.
How can I conveniently make appointment at GOPCs which I usually visit?
“Book GOPC” mobile app is fitted out with the “Bookmark clinic” option for users to garner up to two clinics. The bookmarked clinic(s) as well as its / their quota status will be placed on the booking interface. Users can make appointment according to their preference conveniently by skipping clinic search. Even no clinic is bookmarked, the design of the mobile app allows the last visited clinic to be placed on the booking interface so that users can make appointment at the same clinic more easily.
Q9.
The appointment quota of the clinic I selected has been fully booked. Can the mobile app search for quota in other GOPCs?
Same as the telephone appointment system, to increase the chance of getting an appointment for patient and better utilise the resources by avoiding wastage of quota, “Book GOPC” mobile app links the nearby GOPCs together as a network, within which quota of different clinics could be checked and offered for booking. If the consultation quota of the selected clinic is full, the system will automatically identify available quota in nearby clinic(s) for patient to book.
Q10.
Can I use my account to make appointment for my family members?
For the convenience of members of the public to take care of their family members and / or others in need, the “Book for others” option is available in “Book GOPC” mobile app. When booking for others, you need to login to your own account and have the patient’s HKID card number and date of birth on hand. To protect patient data privacy, you are required to confirm whether you have obtained the patient’s consent to use his / her personal information during the booking process. Once the appointment is made successfully, the mobile app also allows you to email the appointment details to the patient using the “Share” option.
Q11.
Why do I have to input information of “Clinic booked” while I am helping others enquire or cancel the appointment?
When you are enquiring the appointment details or cancelling an appointment for other persons, you will be required by the system to input information of “Clinic booked” for further verification so as to ensure the proper use and safety of patient data.
Q12.
Is it a must to login or input the date of birth every time I help others to make an appointment, enquire appointment details or cancel an appointment? Can such information be saved in the mobile app in order to save time?
To protect the safety of Internet users, the design of the mobile app only allows you to book for others when you are logged in to your own account. Every time you make an appointment, enquire the appointment details or cancel an appointment, you will be required to input the patient’s personal information, such as his / her HKID card number, date of birth and / or the “Clinic booked” (applicable to appointment enquiry and cancellation), for further verification purpose. Besides, the system will confirm whether you have obtained the patient’s consent to use his / her personal information in order to safeguard patient data privacy.
Q13.
Why am I stopped from using the “Book GOPC” mobile app suddenly?
To safeguard the security of user accounts, the system will temporarily suspend mobile device from using “Book GOPC” mobile app if incorrect information is entered repeatedly. You may try using the mobile app again later. Besides, if you fail to attend an appointment for 3 separate occasions within 2 months at any GOPCs, you will also be temporarily suspended from using the mobile app to make appointment. Please enquire at clinic in person if you would like to make appointment for consultation service.

Q15.
How does the mobile app protect my data privacy?
The “Book GOPC” mobile app emphasises not only on a simple booking flow but also its safety to protect patient data privacy. The booking, enquiry and cancellation flow can only be operated with a personal account after verification. When handling booking, enquiry and cancellation for others, users will be required to declare consent being obtained from the persons concerned to ensure patient data privacy. During the booking process, patient data is secured with multiple encryptions, and the mobile app will neither read nor collect data from photo album and personal calendar of the user’s mobile device.

Under such circumstance, command made from another appointment booking means will not be processed. For example, your booking attempt on the mobile app will not be processed while you are making an appointment and inputting your personal information through the telephone appointment system.
