Hospital Authority submits renewal for doctors on Limited Registration

The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:

     The Hospital Authority (HA) today (May 14) submitted to the Medical Council of Hong Kong (MCHK) the renewal applications of Limited Registration for five serving non-local doctors.

     "Facing acute doctor manpower and workload issues in certain clinical units, the continual employment of non-local doctors has been supported by the respective Central Co-ordinating Committees and endorsed by the HA Task Force on Limited Registration Scheme," the HA spokesman said.  

     Submitted to the MCHK today were the renewal applications of Limited Registration for five non-local doctors (two in Anesthesia, two in Emergency Medicine and one in Family Medicine), as their one-year Limited Registration will expire in the second or third quarters of 2015.
     The HA is looking forward to the favorable consideration of the MCHK for the renewal applications and will continue to exhaust every effort to relieve the current manpower shortfall situation.

     Currently, there are 13 non-local doctors working as Service Resident under Limited Registration in HA in the specialties of Anesthesia, Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine and Internal Medicine.
