Valuable experiences to learn things from different countries to widen our vision, and become a better nurse
— Advanced Practise Nurse , March 2017


We have been working with the Hong Kong Hospital Authority since 2013.

 We have trained department operation managers (DOMs), consultant nurses, ward managers and specialist nurses, seconded by the Hospital Authority in the following areas:

  • Accident & Emergency (A&E), Anaesthetic, Hepato-Pancreatic and Biliary (HPB), Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Infection Prevention & Control, Integrated Care, Leadership, Orthopaedic & trauma, Palliative Care, Radiology, Stroke, Urology and Vascular

In addition doctors and fourth year elective medical students have attended the Royal Free London for training in the Care of the Elderly, Accident & Emergency, Hepato-Pancreatic and Biliary, Integrated Care and Palliative Care departments.

As two of our team members have heritage from this region, this has assisted in developing an ongoing  supportive learning environment and helps to make observers  feel very much "at home".
