[SingCham HK Speaker Series] Luncheon Talk on "COVID Care in Private Sector" by Dr Kenneth Tsang, Gleneagles Hospital Hong Kong
The Singapore Chamber of Commerce (Hong Kong) is organising a luncheon talk on "COVID Care in Private Sector" as part of our SingCham HK Fifth Speaker Series this year. The event is on 30 September 2022 (Friday) from 12 noon to 2 pm at Island Shangri-la Hotel Admiralty. The guest speaker is Dr Kenneth Tsang, Chief Executive Officer of Gleneagles Hospital Hong Kong.
Hong Kong's healthcare system is unique for its dual-track system under which the public and private healthcare sectors complement each other. Since the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, the private healthcare sector has stepped up its role in supporting the public system and the community through different means.
Dr Kenneth Tsang will share the various ongoing initiatives taken by the private sector to help ensure more resilient and accessible healthcare amid the pandemic. He will also share insights into how further development of primary care can help relieve the pressure on the public system in the long run.
