Gov't to provide $90b to boost healthcare services

It would also put forward its Primary Healthcare Blueprint to improve Hong Kong's health status.

The city government will produce a recurrent subvention of over $90b to the Hospital Authority to enhance the healthcare services for Hong Kong citizens, a 6% increase from last year.

In a speech during the kick-off ceremony of the 100th anniversary of the Department of Medicine of the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of the University of Hong Kong and the opening of the 27th Hong Kong Medical Forum, the city's Chief Executive, John Lee, said that the funding "would enhance areas, including clinical services for patients suffering from serious diseases, providing additional public hospital beds, operating theatre sessions to collect and deliver drugs, and promoting the use of telehealth services."

He then added that the government put forward its Primary Healthcare Blueprint that would improve the overall health status of the citizens, provide accessible and coherent health services, and establish a sustainable healthcare system.
