Health chief visits Eastern Hospital

Secretary for Health Prof Lo Chung-mau today visited Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital to get an update on the service of public hospitals.        He toured the hospital’s specialist outpatient clinic, medical ward, accident and emergency department and hyperbaric oxygen therapy centre, followed by a meeting with its management and frontline healthcare staff to learn about the service demands and manpower deployment.        Prof Lo said: "Having gone through the anti-epidemic work in the past three years, Hong Kong is on the road to full normalcy. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all healthcare staff for their efforts in performing duties and working tirelessly amidst immense work pressure to safeguard the city's healthcare system.”            Noting that Hong Kong will see a sharp rise in the number of travellers with the full resumption of normal travel with the Mainland, Prof Lo said the Government will closely monitor the development of the CO

3.1m register for voucher scheme

The Government said more than 3.1 million people have submitted electronic registrations for the Consumption Voucher Scheme via its online registration portal as of 11pm today and the portal's operation has remained smooth.   In view of the relatively long waiting time for people who choose to authenticate their identity via iAM Smart, the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer will make adjustments.   From 3am tomorrow, those who wish to use iAM Smart to register for the scheme should use the mobile app in their mobile device for authenticating their identity and register for the scheme directly. This can help ensure that only existing iAM Smart users can choose to register using this method.   The office noted that many people who chose to register for the scheme through iAM Smart in the past two days did not have an account and hence they needed to create one at the same time.   This caused a backlog of registration requests and registration webpages left idle, thereby significantly consuming internet resources and resulting in a long queue.   The office said the adjustments will help reduce the waiting time significantly as people will need to separately create an iAM Smart account before using it to register for the scheme if they are not existing users.   People can still authenticate their identity by answering security questions related to the Cash Payout Scheme launched last year or by inputting personal information and uploading a copy of their Hong Kong identity card.   Additionally, the Government has also fine-tuned the registration procedure to extend the time limit of electronic registration from 30 minutes to 45 minutes to allow ample time for the public to do the registration.

Legal officer changes proposed

The Government has proposed to amend the law to allow legal officers of the Department of Justice to be appointed as a senior counsel.   At a media session after attending a Legislative Council meeting today, Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng explained the rationale behind the Government's proposal.   She said: “Why is it that my colleagues in the Department of Justice - who by their qualifications are solicitors but are actually arguing very well and very efficiently with great eloquence and efficacy in the Court of Final Appeal - are not being recognised when they are actually even better than their counterparts? That has always been something that sometimes troubles me.   “And for that reason, I have always been thinking about how we are going to overcome that problem.   “Now, what really triggers my determination to take this further forward is when one of our Deputy Directors of Public Prosecutions, Vinci Lam, took silk on May 29.   “That really showed that the form
