Some 100 clinics will operate at various times over the Chinese New Yew holiday, including 13 24-hour clinics, said the Health Ministry in a statement on Monday.

The public is advised to seek treatment at their general practitioner or 24-hour clinics for non-emergency situations such as vomiting, abdominal pain, minor burns and scalds and fever.

Members of the public should seek medical treatment at hospitals' Accident & Emergency (A&E) departments only for urgent and life-threatening emergencies such as chest pain, breathlessness and uncontrollable bleeding.

The full list of clinics open during the festive season from Jan 30 to Feb 2 may be viewed at www.moh.gov.sg/cny2014.
