Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine of Tuen Mun Hospital

The Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine of Tuen Mun Hospital was established in March 1990 to serve the population of the districts of Tuen Mun and Yuen Long. Under the recent twenty years, the department has grown substantially to its present size as one of the busiest paediatric departments of Hong Kong.

Our department is one of the accredited training centres of the Hong Kong College of Paediatricians. Our CME activities include weekly journal meeting and case presentations on Tuesdays. Perinatal Meetings, X-ray meetings and clinico-pathological conference with other departments are also conducted from time to time.

We aim at delivering high quality secondary paediatric care to all children in our region and also high quality tertiary care in selected specialty areas, and these include pulmonology, nephrology, gastroenterology, oncology and haematology, neonatology and child protection. It is worthy of note that because of the active role the department plays in child protection, the department was awarded Community Service Award from the hospital for the year 2000. Despite the immense clinical commitment, our staffs are actively involved in scientific publications in local as well as international journals.

Another point worthy of note is that the medical and nursing staffs of our department are actively involved in promoting professional development in various paediatric societies and nurse association. In the current year, members from our department have been involved in various professional organizations.
