A long-awaited investigative report into the University of Hong Kong's medical-billing arrangements will be discussed today before some of it is released publicly. The university council will consider recommendations in the report, which outlines the results of an investigation of complaints on billing of private-patient services at Queen Mary Hospital, during a closed-door meeting. Queen Mary is the university's teaching hospital. Leong Che-hung, an executive councillor and an HKU council member who headed the four-man inquiry committee, said no faculty member would be disciplined. He said last night he hoped the council would accept their recommendation that the whole report be disclosed to the public. Asked whether their investigation was comprehensive enough, Dr Leong said: 'Given the time and remit and without investigative powers, this is the maximum we can do.' The council set up the committee of inquiry on March 8, one day after the medical faculty's former dean, Lam Shiu-kum, resigned. It accepted his resignation on March 20. At the same time, Dr Leong announced that the committee had referred Dr Lam's case to a law enforcement agency. The report sets out the committee's findings, the reasons for its decisions, the actions it proposes and other recommendations. It was completed in late May, but university procedures required that it be sent to an unnamed complainant and Dr Lam, so they could respond to it. HKU Vice-Chancellor Tsui Lap-chee and council chairman Victor Fung Kwok-king were also given copies of the report. Medical sector legislator Kwok Ka-ki said he was concerned the report would be 'a whitewash'. 'We do not know when the report was completed. We do not know how the inquiry was conducted. They have adopted this delaying tactic because they want people to forget about it,' Dr Kwok said. 'The only way to save [the university's] reputation is to let the public be informed about the whole scandal. The government should prosecute if any unlawful transactions have been carried out.'
