Healthcare enters new chapter

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today said primary healthcare development has entered a new chapter under the efforts of the current-term Government.   Mrs Lam made the statement at the District Health Centre - New Journey in Primary Healthcare Ceremony, noting that she advocated in her first Policy Address in 2017 the setting up of District Health Centres (DHCs) that are operated in a brand new mode with a view to enhancing public awareness on preventive healthcare and personal health management through community networks.   To date, DHCs or DHC Expresses have started service in 14 districts. The DHCs will be extended to cover the remaining four districts of Wong Tai Sin, Yuen Long, Southern District and Tsuen Wan, in the next few months.   Mrs Lam noted that upon their presence in all 18 districts within this year, the DHCs and DHC Expresses will serve as the important hardware for promoting the collaboration of primary healthcare services.   She also pointed out that the Food & Health Bureau and the Steering Committee on Primary Healthcare Development had drawn up a framework on the recommendations and goals of the Primary Healthcare Blueprint.   The blueprint maps out the structural changes to the approach of the healthcare system necessitated to cope with the challenges in the decades ahead.   Mrs Lam said the current-term Government will submit relevant specific recommendations to the next-term Government for consideration to formulate an appropriate implementation plan.   Also at the ceremony, Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan said that the DHCs and DHC Expresses are supported by multi-disciplinary professional teams comprising nurses, allied health professionals, pharmacists, social workers and support staff.   Networks are well established by DHCs and DHC Expresses to connect with family doctors, Chinese medicine practitioners and allied health professionals in the districts.   Moreover, DHCs and DHC Expresses co-operate with the seven clusters of the Hospital Authority.   She called on the public to make good use of the various services including chronic disease management and rehabilitation provided by the DHCs and DHC Expresses to safeguard their own health in a preventive approach.   The ceremony is one of the celebration events of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7.
