Hospital Authority Review Steering Committee to hold first meeting next week

The Hospital Authority (HA) Review Steering Committee will hold its first meeting on September 25. The agenda of the meeting includes a briefing on the existing structure, cluster arrangement and resource allocation mechanism of HA and the challenges it faces. Members will also discuss the scope and priority of the review.

A spokesman for the Food and Health Bureau said today (September 19) that, to enable it to consider more comprehensively the views of frontline staff and hospitals of different sizes, the Government has decided to appoint two additional members to the Steering Committee.

The two new members are Dr Kenneth Fu Kam-fung and Mr Pang Chak-hau. Dr Fu is the Associate Consultant of the Department of Surgery in the Division of Urology of Queen Mary Hospital; and Mr Pang is the Nurse Consultant (Wound Care) of Yan Chai Hospital. Their terms of appointment will take immediate effect and will expire upon completion of the review.

The HA Review Steering Committee was established by the Government on August 21 to undertake a comprehensive review of the operation of the HA so that it is more able to meet with the challenges of a changing society and an ageing population.
