It also provides consultative services for the establishment of family medicine based primary care services in the community. The Department’s teaching clinic sets the standard for quality primary care, and has pioneered various new service delivery models including special clinics for chronic disease management and screening, and integrated medical-psychosocial services in primary care. It plays a key role in professional leadership in primary care with staff members serving as chair and members in Task Forces and Working Groups for Primary Care Reform, council members of the Medical Council of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Academy of Medicine, and Chief Censor and examiners of the Hong Kong College of Family Physicians.
