Steering Committee on Review of Hospital Authority holds fifth meeting

The Steering Committee on Review of Hospital Authority (HA) held its fifth meeting today (July 10) to discuss the subjects of training as well as professional and service quality of the HA.

On training, Members noted that the HA, as the largest training institution for health-care professionals in Hong Kong, has undertaken tremendous work for the training of doctors, nurses and allied health staff. While supporting the HA to continue to perform its role in training, Members noted the challenges for the HA in maintaining the high quality of its training work under the situation of manpower shortage and medical technology advancement.

The committee also discussed the professional and service quality of the HA. Members noted that the HA has currently put in place mechanisms and measures to ensure its service quality through the domains of people, facilities, technology, systems and service access.

The committee will continue with its public engagement plan. Further to the public forum at the Henry G Leong Yaumatei Community Centre on July 7, the committee will hold two public fora on July 14 and 19 at Tai Po Community Centre and Causeway Bay Community Centre respectively to gauge public views. Having regard to the views received, it will look into each subject area further in more detail, so as to formulate recommendations for enhancing the effective operation of the HA.
