Programme Highlight:

The Private Healthcare Facilities Ordinance (Cap. 633) (the Ordinance), gazetted on 30 November 2018, introduced a regulatory regime for private healthcare facilities comprising hospitals, day procedure centres, clinics and health services establishments in Hong Kong SAR. Pursuant to the Ordinance, two codes of practice, one for private hospitals and the other for day procedure centres, were published to set out the licensing standards.
The Code of Practice for Day Procedure Centres (2023 Edition) has taken effect from 3 February 2023 with the inclusion of new regulatory requirements of healthcare engineering systems, namely electrical installation, specialized ventilation system, and medical gas supplies in day procedure centres with a transitional arrangement.
