There are various public health services, ranging from general outpatient services, health clinics to specialist hospital care in Hong Kong. They are all easy to access and are usually offered at low cost to the general public (Hong Kong Identity Card holders).

Currently, public hospitals and institutions, specialist out-patient clinics and general out-patient clinics in Hong Kong are managed by the Hospital Authority and are organized into seven hospital clusters according to their locations.

HKUST lies in the Kowloon East Cluster and the closest public hospital is the Tseung Kwan O Hospital. More information about the public health services can be found here.
