Dear Hospital Authority,

You kindly sent me by post the following at the end of 2021:

Dear Enquiry (Hospital Authority),

Thank you.

Can you advise the number of patients, their ages and disease severity that were issued with these drugs/ put on this protocol and their outcome?

Is a doctor obliged to follow this protocol in ALL cases? Is he/ she allowed to administer a different drug/ treatment?

Thank you,

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mrs Van de Pol,

 

Further to my reply dated 26 May 2022, please find below the Hospital
Authority (HA) Head Office’s response to the items you requested:

 

Item 1

The provision of the requested information would involve retrieval,
standardisation, verification and compilation of raw data. Staff in the
departments concerned in the HA Head Office and hospitals would have to be
diverted from their core duties and other more urgent work, which would
affect the execution of the HA’s proper functions. Hence, the HA is unable
to accede to your request for the reason set out in paragraph 2.9(d) of
the Code on Access to Information which states:

 

“Information which could only be made available by unreasonable diversion
of departments’ resources.” (paragraph 2.9(d))

 

If you believe that the HA Head Office has failed to comply with any of
the provisions of the Code on Access to Information, you may ask the HA
Head Office to review the situation by writing to the review officer
(email: [1][Hospital Authority request email] or postal address: c/o Rm 410S, 4/F, Hospital
Authority Building, 147B Argyle Street, Kowloon).

 

Item 2

The “Interim Recommendation on Clinical Management of Adult Cases with
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)” and “Interim Recommendation on
Clinical Management of Paediatric Patients of Coronavirus Disease 2019
(COVID-19) Infection” are formulated to provide general guidance for all
healthcare workers in the HA based on the limited scientific evidence
currently available. Healthcare workers may exercise their professional
judgement for treating COVID-19 patients based on the patients’ clinical
conditions.

 

If you have any questions about this reply, please do not hesitate to
contact me.
