The Hong Kong public hospitals facing high occupancy rate and increasing workload on nursing staff. The public only finger points to the lack of support and resources from the Government. However, the roots of the problem have never been widely discussed and seriously tackled.
It is encouraging to witness that the Government at the Health Policy Address in 2018, has proposed a proactive approach of establishing district based community health centres (DHC) in the 18 administrative districts. For the first time the Government has focused on the development of primary health care and enhancing public awareness in disease prevention and self-health management.
