Home medicine delivery
As the pandemic strains the healthcare system, it has also brought a lot of anxiety to chronically ill patients who have to make regular hospital appointments. Indeed, The Hong Kong Pharmaceutical Care Foundation (HKPCF) has observed that many people who are on long-term medication are afraid to go to Hospital Authority (HA) outpatient clinics for medical appointments during the pandemic.
In response, the Club provided support to HKPCF through its COVID-19 Emergency Fund, which has enabled it to launch a medicine delivery service. Medicine is collected from a HA outpatient clinic on behalf of the patient then delivered to their home.
