The map shows the current (2009) distribution of General Outpatient Clinics (GOPCs) operated by the Hospital Authority in the public service in Hong Kong. These clinics represent the first points of contact for people presenting with minor ailments, chronic diseases, or acute problems which usually do not require hospitalisation. The clinics are concentrated in urban districts. For the convenience of working population, some clinics open in the evening or over Sundays or Public Holidays, as reflected by the symbols in the map. This map does not show the locations of private clinics, which in fact is responsible for a majority of primary care consultations in the territory of Hong Kong.

Data were obtained from the Hospital Authority which runs the GOPCs.

地圖顯示現時(二零零九年)香港醫院管理局轄下各區普通科門診的分佈。這些屬公營服務的門診是市民因一般不適、慢性病或無須留院治療的急性疾病就診的地方。普通科門診多集中在市區,部分為方便上班一族而在周日、假期或晚上應診。地圖並沒有顯示私人診所地點。事實上,私營機構或個別醫生才是香港大部份普通科診所的服務提供者。
