Registration of Healthcare Professionals

Under existing legislation, the following healthcare professionals are required to be registered with their respective boards or councils before they are allowed to practise in Hong Kong. While secretariat support to these boards and councils is provided by the Department of Health, these boards and councils are independent statutory bodies established under the relevant ordinances that operate independently to discharge their statutory functions. The contact methods of each board or council are listed below. Lists of the registered healthcare professionals are provided on the respective Board's or Council's website, where available.
