祝各位新年快樂

 

於2019年12月31日,「楊超發醫生與塔斯馬尼亞的羊群」的畫像於香港文化中心展覽。

 

於2019年12月4日與妻子慶祝生日。

 

 

在過去的六個月,香港各區見證了無數城市運動。 我打算不談及這些運動,因為我們有著不同的政治立場,但是這些廣泛的運動最終影響到市民的生計,甚至影響到我們工會的各會員。

我在各種場合多次對我們的同事說,即使在這些困難的時刻,我們應該透過本會舉辦的延續醫學進修活動來提高我們的醫療技術,時刻保持勢頭,以及透過本會舉辦的各種社交和體育活動來維持大家的友誼。 儘管如此,基於安全原因,我們取消了一些活動,例如乒乓球比賽和一些延續醫學進修活動。

經過幹事會的激烈辯論以及舞蹈和歌唱表演者的鼓勵後,我們的年度晚宴終於2019年12月25日如常舉行,並受到我們所有出席的朋友讚賞,該晚會是西醫工會成功的活動。由於顯而易見的原因,那天晚上我們未能看到並想念來自國內和澳門的賓客。儘管如此,在年度晚宴主席江炎輝醫生的帶領下,及我們辛勤工作的秘書處的支持下,這實在是一項了不起的工作。非常感謝所有人。在晚宴上,我提到我們的活動將如以往一樣進行,最近我們去了廣州市南方醫院,見證了新惠僑樓的開幕,該大樓將容納我們的合作發展的門診病人服務部,歡迎各位會員前往為當地的市民看病。 當城市
回復更加和平時,將會宣布細節。如果閣下希望在大灣區執業的話,非常歡迎你們與秘書處聯繫。我們經過討論而解決了執業許可證、大灣區的醫療專業保障計劃、在內地使用香港的註冊藥物、稅務事項甚至安全措施等障礙。我們歡迎更多建議,以使該項目在新的一年中取得成功。

我在晚宴上提到的第二件事,是在我們努力研究了一年多的電子藥品平台上。 從構思,準備到開發,一直到現在的完成階段,我們都與Vital Base International Limited合作。本會建立該平台旨在方便醫生於日常執業中搜索藥物的資料和加快獲取藥物的過程。因為這個電子藥品平台可以為各會員提供最新的藥物資訊、同時亦為藥廠提供平台、以將有關產品研究、開發成果、新藥上市、藥物新聞和藥物資料等的信息在線發布給醫生,它可以即時傳播最新的藥物新聞和有關藥物研究最新進展的信息給所有醫生。

電子藥品平台計劃於2020年第一季度尾啟動。在啟動之前,我們將邀請會員和藥廠試驗。歡迎有興趣的醫生和藥廠與我們或我們的秘書處聯繫,以獲取有關該平台的更多消息。

祝大家2020年新年快樂!

Wish you a happy new year!

 

President Yeung Chiu Fat

 

In the past 6 months, Hong Kong has witnessed numerous city movements territory wide. I intend not to talk about these activities as we have different political stands. However, such widespread movements eventually move into the livelihood of each and every one of us and even into associations like our Union.

I have repeatedly said to our colleagues in various occasions that we should upkeep our momentum to upgrade our medical skills through Union organized CME activities and to keep our friendship by organizing various social and sports activities even in these difficult moments. None the less, some of our activities, like table tennis tournament and some CME activities, are cancelled for safety reasons.

After heated debates in the council and encouragement from the dancing and singing performers, our Annual Dinner at last went ahead and was applauded by all our attending friends on 25th Dec 2019 to be a successful event of the Union. We missed the guests from the mainland and Macau on that night for obvious reasons. Never the less, it is a wonderful job by the chairman of the Annual Dinner, Dr. Kong Yim Fai, with the support of our hardworking secretariat. Many thanks to all of them.

In the dinner, I mentioned that our activities will be held as previously and recently we went to Quangzhou NangFang Hospital to witness the opening of the new Huiqiao Department, which is a building that would house our joint venture Out Patient Service Unit where our colleagues can go there for clinical practice. Details would be announced when the city become more peaceful. You are much welcome to show your interest to our secretariat if you wish to practice your medical skill in the Greater Bay Area. We have gone through hurdles like the License to practice, Medical Indemnity in Greater Bay Area, usage of Hong Kong registered drug, tax matters and even security measures. And we welcome more suggestions to make this project successful in this new year.

The second thing I mentioned in the Dinner is on the e-Pharm platform, a project that we have been working hard for over one year. We have worked with Vital Base International from conception, preparation to development and now going into the completion phase. The platform was built with the aim of facilitating the acquisition and search of drug information in the doctors’ daily practice. As we provide platform for drug delivery plants to post their information on product research, development achievements, new drug launches, drug news and drug resources online to doctors, it allows instant dissemination of up to date drug news and information on recent advances on drug researches to all doctors.

Together with the increasing demand of online CME by doctors, we hope that this IT platform will help the access of CME lectures and materials with CME scores. The platform will also facilitate access of CME calendar and the checking on CME score. Moreover, it is also a platform for more effective communication among HKDU, doctors and pharmaceuticals.

The e-Pharm platform is scheduled to be launched towards the end of first quarter of 2020. Before the launch, we shall invite testers from members and pharmaceuticals for trial sessions. Interested doctors and pharmaceuticals are most welcome to contact us or our secretariat for more information of the platform.

Wish you a Happy New Year of 2020!

 

Dr. Yeung Chiu Fat Henry
