Hospital Authority submits renewal application for Limited Registration

The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:

     The Hospital Authority (HA) today (April 8) submitted applications to the Medical Council of Hong Kong (MCHK) for the renewal of Limited Registration of three non-local doctors whose one-year registration will expire in May and July of this year.  The doctors, one in Anaesthesia and two in Emergency Medicine, were recruited last year on the MCHK's approval for practice under one-year Limited Registration.

     The HA spokesman said that 19 doctors have been approved by the MCHK since 2012 for practice in public hospitals under Limited Registration to relieve manpower pressure in the specialties of Anaesthesia, Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Psychiatry. Currently, there are 12 non-local doctors working for the HA, alleviating the workload pressure of frontline doctors.

     The spokesman remarked that the HA will continue to exhaust every effort to attract fully registered local doctors and retain public doctors. Meanwhile, the HA would like to express appreciation to all doctors for their commitment and contribution to serving the public under the current manpower constraints.
