Limited Registration renewal applications for public doctors submitted
The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:
     The Hospital Authority (HA) today (May 12) submitted to the Medical Council of Hong Kong (MCHK) the renewal applications for Limited Registration for four non-local doctors to serve in public hospitals. 
     "Facing doctor manpower shortage and workload issues in various clinical units, the recruitment 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. 
     The four renewal applications for Limited Registration submitted to the MCHK today are for non-local doctors serving in the specialties of emergency medicine, family medicine, paediatrics and radiology, and their Limited Registration will expire in the second and third quarters of 2017.
     Currently, there are 15 non-local doctors working in public hospitals as Service Residents under Limited Registration in the specialties of anaesthesia, emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics and radiology to help relieve the manpower pressure in the respective units.
