Those who feel unwell during the festive period should visit one of these clinics for "minor, self-limiting conditions", the health ministry said.

People should seek treatment at hospitals' accident and emergency departments only for serious or life-threatening emergencies such as chest pain, breathlessness and uncontrollable bleeding, it added.
