  • Medicine Clinic

    Over the past one year, the Department of Medicine has expanded considerably. The Department is being led by Dr. Pearl Pai (CoS), Professor Patrick Chu, and Drs. KH Yiu, WK Seto, C Hui, M Chan, L Lam, assisted by Drs. LJ Zhang, XM Liu, XF Li, R Wang, M Wu, XS Zhang, JF Gu, XY Li, JF Cai, DH Yang, L Rong, T Lv, W Liang, MY Liu, CT Zhao, TH Ren, HB Xiao, G Wang, J Wang, SC Hou, ZY Zhang, backed by Nurses FM Huang, JF Cao, XC Zeng, CH Liu, Y Lu, JF Tang, T Bo, Y Chen, XM Hu, HX Sui, YY Sun.

    Our daily outpatients have increased from 650 last year to 1,000 and the medical in-patient bed-use was close to 280, provided by 7 wards. Now with more resources allocated, we are trying to reinforce and strengthen our Department. Additional resources made available to us have enabled us to initiate new services to meet patients’ demands and to handle diseases more complex in nature and with more efficacy. We have extended our services to the International Medical Centre (IMC) and V Block, and the Emergency Medical Admission Unit (EMAU). HKU professoriate visitors travel to HKU-SZH twice a week to conduct teaching ward rounds and to discuss complex cases.

    Presently the DSA lab and coronary service, the neurology diagnostic unit, the dialysis centre, and the endoscopy suite are all providing excellent services. Some of the OP services we are offering is getting more sophisticated and specialized. In 2015, for cardiac, we have established AF clinic, HF clinic, psoriasis and laser clinics in dermatology; for endocrinology, there is a joint gestational diabetes clinic, adrenal and obesity clinics; for gastroenterology, we have a liver and pancreas clinic; then there is a smoking cessation clinics; a gout and a lupus clinic to name a few. In 2016, two other areas will be introduced including a sleep centre and respiratory HDU and a bone marrow transplant facility just to give you some rough ideas.

    The development of clinical pathway and care plan to ensure high quality and consistent result has been recognized by our peers at international meetings.
