Advocating the concept of “Health is CORE”, Sham Shui Po District Health Centre provides district-based primary healthcare services through health promotion, diseases prevention, health assessment & consultation and chronic diseases management (e.g. hypertension, diabetes and musculoskeletal pain etc.) to enhance public awareness of self-management of health. Through public-private partnership, the chronically ill are well-supported and the residents can receive necessary health service in the community.
In 2020, the Food and Health Bureau (FHB) awarded the 3-year operation service contract of Sham Shui Po District Health Centre (SSPDHC) to St. James’ Settlement.
St. James’ Settlement is a multi-social service agency that provides comprehensive services to the needy, including rehabilitation, education, continuing care, family and counselling, youth, community development and charity services. To date, our 73 service points are in operation across Hong Kong and the Settlement has served near 2.2 million person-times.
