Chief Executive, Hospital Authority
Dear Dr. Leung,
About limited registration
I do NOT agree to expand the exercise of limited registration before reviewing and tackling the underlying cause of manpower crisis.
I would like to ask,
1. How many Associate Consultants/ Consultants are deployed to non-clinical areas ? e.g. HAHO, accredidation, training, quality and safety, infection control, information technology etc.
2. Some members report to us that there are consultants or COS without actual clinical duties in busy clinical departments. Do you have the figures that the clinical consultants/ COS without actual clinical duties ?
3. How many meetings are there in HAHO meeting room every month (not include training or workshop)? How many doctor hours are involved in the meetings ?
4. Is there any guideline or rule inside Hospital Authority in renewing the contract of doctors with limited registration, (a) in the past, (b) now, (c) and in the future? What is the consequence if the managers do not follow the guideline ?
I am looking forward to receiving your detail reply.
Dr. Pierre CHAN
