Govt fosters DC healthcare links

Under Secretary for Health Libby Lee today said that District Councillors, with their strong district network, are staunch and reliable district partners of the Government in pushing forward community-based primary healthcare projects.


At an exchange session on primary healthcare development, Dr Lee expressed hope that the collaboration between District Council (DC) members and District Health Centres (DHCs) would be further strengthened for driving more targeted promotion of primary healthcare at the district level.


The Health Bureau organised the briefing and exchange session, which will be followed by another session on April 6.


At today's session, Dr Lee and Commissioner for Primary Healthcare Pang Fei-chau briefed DC members on the latest work progress of the Primary Healthcare Blueprint, including the Chronic Disease Co-Care Pilot Scheme.


DC members from Central & Western District, Eastern District, Southern District, Wan Chai, Kowloon City, Yuen Long, Tuen Mun, Tsuen Wan and Islands District attended the session.


Noting that DHCs serve as a healthcare service and resource hub, while DC members are familiar with district affairs, Dr Lee said the briefing will usher in their collaboration to synergise their strengths for primary healthcare promotion.


“With staunch support from DC members who know best citizens’ sentiments with a robust district network, our explanatory work and promotion to the public will be more effective in the future and the various primary healthcare measures can be implemented in a way that suit well citizens’ needs.”
