In Alignment to and Support of Recent Government Initiated Actions
HONG KONG, Sept. 25 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- In alignment and support of the Hong Kong Government's response to the recent incidents of melamine-tainted milk products in the Mainland and here in Hong Kong, Quality Healthcare has set up a comprehensive network of designated medical centres across the territory to conveniently provide affordable children kidney screening services, for the assessment of kidney health conditions.
Affordable and Convenient Screening Package
In accordance to the government-initiated diagnostics procedures,
Quality Healthcare's children kidney screening package will include:
-- Medical doctor consultation
-- Child urine sample analysis
-- Kidney and bladder ultrasound
In addition, Quality Healthcare will continue to have close communications with the Department of Health to ensure all cases requiring further follow up can be timely identified and referred.
For more information about the screening package, please call Quality HealthCare's 24-hour Medical Call Centre hotline at 8301 8301, or visit the website at http://www.qhms.com for additional information.
Realizing Social Responsibility
"The healthcare professionals at Quality Healthcare are committed to providing caring and socially responsible health services to local citizens," said Dr. Horace Lee, Medical Director of Quality HealthCare Medical Services. "Any screening program should be cognizant of the balance between the need to fully assess the child's health based on medical evidence, and the discomfort medical assessment may bring to the child and parents."
Dr. Lee also remarked: "We are committed to supporting the government's focus on children possibly affected by contaminated dairy products and to assisting their concerned parents through these uncertain times."
