School of Chinese Medicine launches online consultation and medicine delivery services
18 Jul 2021
The Clinical Division of the School of Chinese Medicine has launched the online consultation and medicine delivery services that aim to provide patients with more convenient and diversified consultation arrangements. The services can save transportation time for patients and reduce the risk of infection as they do not need to commute to the clinics in person for medical consultations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The online consultation service is suitable for non-acute patients. The service is available to current patients of the HKBU Mr & Mrs Chan Hon Yin Chinese Medicine Specialty Clinic and Good Clinical Practice Centre (Kowloon Tong clinic) and the HKBU ‒ Jockey Club Chinese Medicine Disease Prevention and Health Management Centre.
The new services are easy to use. Patients can make an appointment with the clinics’ Chinese medicine practitioners by phone. They can then use the video call function of the mobile messaging application WhatsApp to undergo a remote consultation with the Chinese medicine practitioner at the reserved time. The medicine prescribed by the Chinese medicine practitioner will then be delivered to a designated location specified by the patient.
