Press Statement

In late April, HKDU approached the Permanent Secretary for Education and Manpower Bureau, Mrs. Fanny Law, concerning a School Advisory Service on SARS (SASS).  On 26.4.2003 we received a favourable reply from Mrs. Law and Prof. Arthur Li Kwok Cheung, the Secretary for Education and Manpower Bureau.  Both welcomed the idea and subsequently assigned the Deputy Secretary, Mr. C.Y. Cheng to coordinate with HKDU on this project. 

The aim of SASS is to offer up to date knowledge on SARS to schools and answer queries from teachers and parents passed through designated persons. When necessary, the doctors may visit and give talks to schools upon request.  Our project is supported by the Department of Health which promised to provide participating doctors up to date information on SARS.

Up till today we have about 30 doctors joining the project and by 7th May 2003 we will pass on the details of the first list of participating doctors to the Education and Manpower Bureau which will match the doctors to schools according to the 18 districts.

香港西醫工會早已於4月下旬與教統局常務秘書長羅范椒芬女士商討舉辦學校醫生SARS資詢計劃 (School Advisory Service on SARS,簡稱SASS),而這計劃已於4月26日獲得教統局李國章局長及羅女士回覆贊同與歡迎,並交由副秘書長鄭恩賜先生與本會作緊密聯絡。

SASS計劃旨在提供迅速資訊予學校指定人士,解答學校與家長對SARS提出的疑問,並於有需要時醫生會因應要求而到學校講述有關知識。本會已與壎芵p商談本計劃,並得到壎芵p支持,於第一時間提供SARS資料予參與醫生並保持聯絡。

至今日為止,已有數十位香港西醫工會會員醫生報名參與,本會在5月7日將會把第一批參與醫生的資料呈交教統局,讓校方自行按十八區分佈自行配對。
