Three more traditional Chinese medicine clinics with modern management will be set up at public hospitals under a Hospital Authority proposal.


The authority's internal document, to be discussed on Tuesday, says the clinics will be at Madam Yung Fung Shee Health Centre, Yuen Long, Woo Ping Care and Attention Centre, Tseung Kwan O, and Tang Shiu Kin Hospital, Wan Chai. They will be equipped with computerised systems for patient records, dispensary and laboratory tests.


The authority says the sites selected have dense populations and a high proportion of elderly.


The project will cost $20.9 million and the recurrent expenditure is estimated to be about $9.84 million a year.


They will be jointly run with non-governmental organisations and universities.


In 2003-04, the first three modern Chinese medicine clinics were set up in Tung Wah Hospital, Yan Chai Hospital and Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital.
