At the Forum on Primary Care Services in the PRD jointly organised by the Centre and the Greater Pearl River Delta Business Council today, the Centre released a research study to call for closer working relations and cooperation between Hong Kong and the Mainland in the healthcare sector.
Covering six major PRD cities, the study aims to enable Hong Kong residents working, studying or retiring in the PRD to have a better understanding of the primary care services in the region, as well as to provide an overview of the current situation and prospects relating to Hong Kong doctors operating in the region.
The Centre puts forth recommendations on three livelihood issues, i.e., development of primary care, columbarium policy and anti-drugs issue, for public discussion.
To ensure the sustainability and responsiveness of Hong Kong’s health care system in the long run, efforts should be made to promote behavioral changes in individuals, Government and service providers.
