CE begins visit to Xi'an

Chief Executive Carrie Lam left Chongqing for Xi'an today and began her visit programme in Shaanxi Province.   After arriving in Xi'an, she met Shaanxi Governor Zhao Yide and attended a lunch he hosted.   Mrs Lam said she was pleased to visit Shaanxi for the first time as Chief Executive and congratulated Shaanxi on the successful hosting of the 14th National Games.   She expressed hope that Shaanxi would share its valuable experience, enabling the governments of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Guangdong Province and the Macau SAR to do a good job in hosting the 15th National Games in 2025.   Noting that Shaanxi is a key link for the nation's Belt & Road Initiative with its rich cultural history, the Chief Executive said the two places can build on the close trade and economic ties to enhance collaboration to contribute to the initiative and promote arts and cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world.   She added that the Hong Kong

Doctor registration bill backed

The Medical Registration (Amendment) Bill 2021 can help increase and stabilise the supply of medical talents for Hong Kong, the Hospital Authority said today.   In response to a recent online commentary, the authority said in a statement that it welcomed the Government’s announcement on submitting the bill to the Legislative Council on June 2 to introduce a new pathway for non-locally trained Hong Kong doctors to return and serve in the city.   The bill stipulates that doctors applying for special registration must be Hong Kong permanent residents.   The authority noted that it will continue to collaborate with the Academy of Medicine to facilitate non-locally trained doctors to receive specialist training while working in Hong Kong, assess their job performance for the five years following the attainment of their specialist qualification and acknowledge their competence as doctors before they can apply for full registration.   The commentary stating that the bill's purpose is to introduce mainland doctors is purely speculative, arouses undue conflicts and misleads the public, the authority said, adding that the Government is imposing a higher requirement for non-locally-trained doctors in comparison with locally trained doctors who can obtain full registration after completing a one-year internship.   The authority stressed that the purpose of the bill is to attract non-locally trained doctors, who are Hong Kong permanent residents, to return to Hong Kong and serve for a specific period of time in the public healthcare sector.   By serving in the public healthcare sector for an extended period of time, the non-locally trained doctors will definitely help relieve frontline doctors’ workload, it added.   Although the two local universities have progressively increased the intake of medical students, while the authority has recruited all suitable local medical graduates, supply still falls short of the city’s demand due to an ageing population and rising service needs.   The authority noted it was concerned about the manpower situation of doctors in public hospitals and has implemented various human resources measures to increase and retain manpower, meet service demand and alleviate frontline doctors’ workload.   It also trusted that the Government’s proposed plan could increase and stabilise the supply of medical talents and hoped the profession could be more liberal in the discussion.
