    Look for the Out Patients clinic.

    Download the app HAGo.
    This will enable you to book both General Oupatient ie GP or Specialist Outpatient across all public hospitals and districts.
    There is a document verification step first time use where you must go in person to the nearest clinic for identity verification and activation of the app which just takes minutes.
    For your thyroid problem download the app and get it verified and activated , make the appointment for GOPC ( general outpatient ) in the first instance and the doctor there wii provide you a letter for booking the endocrinologist at Specialist outpatients as necessary.
    Thanks ,I will do it.

    Ask to see an Endrocrinologist at the Out Patients reception.

    Follow the signs from the main entrance.

    It will be better if I can get the list of hospitals with endocrinologist ,so that I can directly visit them.

    Jesus and Xijus... Put some effort in it.. Like your body depends on it.

    Your problem is the budget that you want to fit into and the lack of a referral letter from a GP.

    Trying to book appointment since morning but no luck, many calls tried, continuously refreshing app but always showing "Temporary Full".

    Anybody successfully booked here ? Any trick ?

    Try calling the automated appointment booking service the HA has, it will give you some clinic options and date ranges to choose from.

    The quality of the referral letter is important. The typically poor letter gets you consigned to the 'routine' queue. In the end, your condition may simply be 'non-urgent' and 'routine'. If you want to be seen earlier then you need to go private. Getting a private consultation with a specialist (in the thousands of HKD) will hopefully get you a decent assessment of your condition and how you should proceed, you can then decide whether to wait for public care or continue with private care. The private clinics at the University hospitals may be less 'money orientated' than the others, but there's no guarantee. You get greedy doctors too, like those selling 'exemption certificates'.
