Hospital Authority welcomes staff resuming duty
The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:

     The Hospital Authority (HA) welcomes staff union's decision to suspend industrial action today (February 7), and hopes staff members can resume duty as soon as possible to provide the patient services in need.
     As the continuing industrial action has affected public hospital services for several days, the HA wishes to apologise to all affected patients. The HA will continue to maintain communication and dialogue with staff members and unions.
     Committed to protecting the safety of healthcare staff and patients, the HA will try its best efforts to procure adequate protective equipment and adjust elective services to focus resources on fighting the epidemic.
     The HA once again thanks the staff who have stayed on duty to maintain public hospital services with great efforts. We sincerely hope that all staff will join hands to combat the increasingly severe epidemic situation.
