     The Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Ko Wing-man, will depart for Macau tomorrow morning (July 31) to visit primary health-care facilities, a hospital's acute care and rehabilitation service, and a Chinese medicine research centre.

     During the visit, Dr Ko will call on Macau's Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture, Mr Cheong U, and the Director of the Health Bureau, Dr Lei Chin-ion, to exchange views on public health issues and matters of mutual concern, strengthening ties between the two places.

     Health-care establishments to be visited by Dr Ko will include an outlying island acute care services centre and the integrated community medical centre of the Conde de São Januário General Hospital. The acute care services centre provides 24-hour emergency medical services while the integrated community medical centre receives patients from Conde de São Januário General Hospital's medical wards, nerve internal medicine department and department of orthopaedics who are in stable condition and are expected to return to the community in two weeks.

     In the afternoon, Dr Ko will visit a traditional Chinese medicine science and technology park in Hengqin. He will tour an exhibition hall to learn more about the latest developments in business promotion and major projects on traditional Chinese medicine. Dr Ko will then visit an elderly health centre in Taipa Island to see for himself Macau's elderly health-care facilities.

     He will return to Hong Kong tomorrow night.
