2004 Health Manpower Survey on Doctors

The Department of Health will conduct the 2004 Health Manpower Survey (HMS) on doctors in November 2004.  The Survey aims to collect updated information on the characteristics and employment status of registered doctors in Hong Kong.  The survey result will provide an important basis for health manpower planning.

Although participation in the Survey is voluntary, your active participation is extremely important to make the Survey a success.  We would like to enlist your support to the Survey by completely the questionnaire and returning it by 31 December 2004 (Friday).

Similar to that of the previous surveys, self-administered questionnaires will be sent together with the letters for renewal of practising certificates to all registered doctors in Hong Kong.  The information collected will be handled in strict confidence and analysed in aggregate form to protect your privacy.  Upon completion of the Survey, the results with the personal data anonymized will be released through the hompage of the Department of Health.

If you wish to have more information on the Survey, please visit the homepage of the Department of Health at  For further enquiries, please contact the Health Manpower Unit, Department of Health at 2961 8566.
