Inspired by Health In Action’s successful experience of Healthy Living Project for Working Poor Families in Kwai Tsing District, we then established this Kwai Tsing Community Health Management Hub in November 2018 – a community health center operated by a team of allied healthcare professionals including Registered Nurses, Pharmacist, Physiotherapist, Community Nutritionist; together with Social Worker and other community volunteers who contribute their respective expertise to enhance the health literacy and management skills of hub members, as well as encouraging the use of public health facilities. Working poor and their family members in Kwai Tsing District can apply for membership free of charge.
Innovative service model, first-of-its-kind
- Service available on certain weekday evening and Sat morning, catered the members who have long working hours
- Person-centered and Family Health Management approach adopted to provide integrative health management services for working poor and their family members
We focus on providing services related to common chronic conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, 3 Highs and Chronic Pain etc. The services include nurse clinic, community pharmacy and pharmacist consultation services, pain & occupational screening and consultations, weight management program, community volunteer training as well as regular health workshops/groups and supporting services e.g medical expenses and referral service. We also proactively reach out to the management of small and medium-sized enterprises in Kwai Tsing area to promote community-based healthcare services and occupational health. Our outreach healthcare stations also enable us to indeed get into the community and understand the real needs of the community members.
