Medical Services

Private Hospitals

31.        To develop our medical services, we will, by the end of this year, invite expressions of interest from the market to develop private hospitals, which may provide traditional Chinese medicine services, on four sites at Wong Chuk Hang, Tseung Kwan O, Tai Po and Lantau. Based on the expressions of interest received, we will make appropriate land disposal arrangements which can encourage innovation, enhance the quality of services, increase the transparency of fees and charges, and ensure the provision of quality private medical services to the public. Meanwhile, we will also consider making use of the vacant space in public hospitals for additional medical facilities. We will facilitate the change of land use of private sites for medical use subject to planning permission. We will closely monitor the demand of the market and medical sector for land, and ensure that suitable sites are available for the development of medical services.
