In answer to a question raised in Hong Kong’s Legislative Council regarding the professional indemnity arrangements for private medical practitioners, the Secretary for Food and Health outlined some of the key details. As reported on 7thspace.com, the Secretary explained that ensuring adequate insurance provision was in place for private practitioners was the responsibility of the medical profession, not the Administration. However, he did reveal that some 8,800 of Hong Kong’s practitioners, approximately 70% of the total, are members of a professional indemnity insurance scheme managed by the Medical Protection Society, an organisation that operates in more than 40 different countries and has been established since 1892.
