Hospitals & Clinics    

Guangzhou has an effective and efficient medical and healthcare network and general and specialized hospitals can be found in all of the city's administrative districts. Foreigners in Guangzhou may seek medical attention at the hospital by presenting their personal identity document or residence permit. If they are unable to make the trip to the hospital, they can dial emergency assistance number 120 or the number of their designated hospital for an ambulance. The ambulance will bring the patient to the nearest hospital for a fee. The fee ranges from one hundred to several hundred of RMB, depending on the distance transported and the medicines used.

Government-operated hospitals, such as the Guangdong Provincial People's Hospital, tend to have numerous outpatients. They offer online and telephone appointment services. Patients may proceed to the outpatient department, register and wait their turn. Outpatient services follow this procedure: Registration and assignment to the right department for diagnosis – Waiting for one's turn – Consultation with the doctor – Paid examinations and tests (some examinations require appointments in advance) – Direct prescription by doctor or prescription according to the results of examinations and tests – Paying – Collecting medicines.

Children who have failed to receive required vaccinations as a result of relocation, extended travel or residing in another city may undertake their required vaccinations at the vaccination service institution at their new place of abode by presenting their vaccination card. Vaccinations received should be recorded by the nurses on the card. Custodians of children should keep vaccination cards in a secure place and in good condition for inspection upon the children's enrollment at a kindergarten or primary school or upon said childs' entry into and/or exit from China.
