Manpower Planning

Build up Clinical Expertise

Manpower and expertise are the key enablers for implementing the new service model so as to improve patient care and enhance professional standard of paediatric services. In view of the tight manpower of existing public paediatric services, it is of utmost importance to build up clinical manpower, especially in clinical priority areas, for supporting service commencement of HKCH in 2018.
Local and overseas training for healthcare professionals have been arranged during the commissioning phase.
Starting from 2015, advance recruitment by lateral transfer of experienced HA serving clinical staff to work at HKCH upon service commencement in 2018 has been performed. In addition, a central recruitment model for new paediatric resident trainees has been implemented. 22 new residents were employed under this model in 2015. It is aimed to employ all paediatrics doctors under HA paediatric service network ultimately, facilitating staff rotation, training and the hub-and-spoke service model.

Identify Clinical Leaders

To prepare for the hospital service commencement and implementation of the hub-and-spoke model in the paediatric service network, Commissioning Service Co-ordinators have been appointed to lead the service reorganisation and advice on the manpower and training plan for their respective specialties.

New and Flexible Model for Human Resources Management

We are also in the process of developing a new and flexible model to facilitate the recruitment and deployment of healthcare professionals working in the paediatric service network.  Centrally coordinated manpower planning and introduction of flexible employment terms are going to be the principles for pooling up and retention of expertise.
