LCQ11: Uncommon disorders
     Following is a question by the Dr Hon Fernando Cheung and a written reply by the Secretary for Food and Health, Professor Sophia Chan, in the Legislative Council today (December 6):
     Will the Government inform this Council whether it knows, regarding the various uncommon diseases listed in the table below, (i) the current number of patients and (ii) the year in which the first case was confirmed? (Please refer to the attached table.)
     The clinical system of the Hospital Authority (HA) maintains data of diagnosis of all of its patients, but does not maintain the statistical data according to the categorisation of diseases mentioned in the Dr Hon Fernando Cheung’s question.

     The Government and the HA are very concerned about the well-being of all patients, including patients with uncommon disorders.  Clinical and healthcare teams will provide appropriate care for patients based on their clinical conditions and treatment needs.
