HKBU opens its 16th Chinese medicine clinic in North Point today

浸大第十六間中醫專科診所今於北角開幕

Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) held an opening ceremony today (29 November) for the HKBU Chinese Medicine Specialty Clinic (North Point), the 16th clinic operating under the School of Chinese Medicine (SCM). Located on the Joyous Hub, 3/F The Tanner Hall, 8 Tanner Road in North Point, Hong Kong, the new clinic aims to provide the community with modernised and high quality Chinese medicine consultation and healthcare services.

Officiating at today’s opening ceremony were Chairman of Elderly Commission Membership Dr Lam Ching-choi, Chairman of Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS) Mr Marco Wu, HKBU Chairman of the Council and Court Mr Cheng Yan-kee, President and Vice-President Professor Roland Chin, Vice-President (Teaching and Learning) Dr Albert Chau, Associate Vice-President Professor Bian Zhaoxiang, President of the Advisory Committee of SCM Dr Kennedy Wong, Dean of SCM Professor Lyu Aiping, and Director (Development & Marketing) of HKHS Mr Daniel Lau.

In his welcoming remarks, Mr Cheng Yan-kee said HKBU is committed to serving the community with high quality and systematic Chinese medicine clinical services through its 16 Chinese medicine clinics across Hong Kong. All these clinics serve as a good teaching base for university students, providing them with a place for practicum and internships for clinical and pharmacy study. He said that HKBU submitted an expression of interest to the Government in May 2016 to develop the first Chinese medicine hospital in the territory with the aim of providing the community with a comprehensive range of Chinese medicine services. It is envisaged that the Chinese medicine hospital would benefit members of the public, the industry and medical education sector as well as the Government by tapping into the advantages of Chinese medicine in the treatment of diseases as well as potential nourishment and healthcare measures.

In his speech, Mr Marco Wu said the problems posed by an ageing population has gained much attention from the local community, and many of today’s elderly seek a better quality of living after retirement. This successful collaboration between the HKBU School of Chinese Medicine and the Hong Kong Housing Society fully rides on the shared vision of the two parties in serving the community.”

Speaking at the ceremony, Professor Lyu Aiping said SCM strives to contribute to the development of Chinese medicine by nurturing outstanding new talent and offering a full range of medical services for the local community. He added that the new clinic in North Point was established through the concerted efforts of various organisations and units, and gave special acknowledgement to the Hong Kong Housing Society for their trust and support. Professor Lyu said: “In addition to providing high quality medical services to the public, we are also dedicated to promoting public health education and serving the community through various means, including education talks, health activities and guided tours so as to enhance public understanding and knowledge of Chinese medicine.”

The newly opened clinic in North Point has five private consultation rooms and three well-equipped treatment rooms as well as a modernised herbal brewing room and a herb storage room with constant temperature and humidity to deliver treatment and traditional herbs in a more convenient and efficient manner. To promote the standardisation of Chinese medicine, it is also equipped with a computerised management system for patient records, pharmacy management and herb storage. In addition to general consultation services, the clinic also provides a broad spectrum of Chinese medicine specialty services covering areas of internal diseases, gynecology, oncology, gerontology, pain diseases, pediatrics, acupuncture and tui na.

鄔滿海先生致辭時說,香港人口老化的問題一直備受關注,隨著社會進步,一些長者對退休生活質素有更高的要求,而今次浸大中醫藥學院及房協得以成功合作,全因為雙方有共同服務社區的理念。
