Tenders invited for Tsuen Wan District Health Centre
     The Food and Health Bureau (FHB) today (December 3) invites tenders from non-public entities to provide services for the operation of the Tsuen Wan District Health Centre (DHC).
     The successful tenderer for the Tsuen Wan DHC (i.e. the future operator of the DHC), upon being awarded the service contract, will have a gearing-up period of up to eight months for the targeted commissioning of the DHC and associated service network in 2022. The operation period under this contract will be three years.
     The Tsuen Wan DHC will provide services with a focus on three tiers of prevention, namely primary, secondary and tertiary prevention. The services will be adjusted taking into account the population distribution and health risk factors in the community of the district. Government-subsidised primary healthcare services including health promotion, health assessment, chronic disease management and community rehabilitation will be provided by the operator of the DHC through medical-social collaboration and public-private partnership to enhance the public's capability in self-management of health and provide support for the chronically ill in the community.
     As a key component of the public healthcare system, the DHC is a district primary healthcare hub comprising a core centre, complemented by sub-district satellite centres and a network of private medical and healthcare practitioners providing multiple access and service points. Apart from service delivery, the DHC also co-ordinates with community partners to provide social welfare and healthcare services in the district, and makes referrals as necessary.
     The basic services to be operated by the DHC are set out in the tender documents. The charges which the operator may impose on DHC clients cannot exceed the prescribed ceilings set out in the tender documents.
     The tender notice is available on the FHB website (www.fhb.gov.hk/en/tender/).  A briefing session will be arranged for interested parties on December 17 (Friday).  Details are set out in the tender documents.
     Tenderers must submit their tenders by placing them in the Government Secretariat Tender Box located in the lobby of the Public Entrance on the Ground Floor, East Wing, Central Government Offices, 2 Tim Mei Avenue, Tamar, Hong Kong, before noon on January 14, 2022 (Friday).  Late tenders will not be accepted.
