Key Trends And Developments

In July 2015 Hong Kong's leading private clinic operator Quality HealthCare called for a more centralised drug-ordering system for private doctors taking part in a public-private partnership scheme to ease the workload on the public health sector.

In May 2015 Hong Kong's healthcare system is overly dependent on overstretched public hospitals and under-uses smaller primary care facilities, according to the former chief of the National Health Service (NHS) England David Nicholson. Currently, over 90% of the city's patients receive healthcare at government-funded public hospitals compared with 92% of patients in England that receive care from general practitioners at private clinics.
