About Us

Department of Health AssessmentAs the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. Health assessment thus plays an important role to provide data about one's health. At the Department of Health Assessment, we provide a variety of health assessment tests for people to identify risk factors, prevent disease progression and detect diseases in the early stage so as to lead a healthy life.

Since its inception in 1984, the Department of Health Assessment has enjoyed a reputation for quality and excellence in providing wide-ranging health assessment services in Hong Kong. Equipped with the state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, the Department has a dedicated team of healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses and technicians. Three registered dietitians provide dietary and nutritional advice in the Department as necessary. Based on health assessment results, the professional team will make recommendations on lifestyle, diet and behaviour to achieve optimal health.

Health Advice
As an effective preventive measure, health assessment provides valuable information for the clients to make well-informed health decisions and choices. To this end, all Assessment Schemes are monitored by experienced doctors in two consultation sessions as follows:

In the first session, advice is offered based on clients' medical history and physical examination. Additional targeting tests for particular conditions / problems will be suggested where indicated.

In the second session that is normally scheduled within 10 days after the first session, the attending doctor reviews the Assessment Report with the clients and offers advice on lifestyle changes and health management where indicated.

In addition, a registered dietitian is ready to provide professional dietary advice. Referral to various specialists can be made if deemed necessary.

Clinical Physiology Service
A wide range of clinical physiological tests are provided at the Department of Health Assessment, including treadmill, spirometry, and lung function test.
