The Community Health Day of "One Service Unit One Doctor" Scheme was successfully held on Saturday, 12 August 2017. We invited Hong Kong Credible Care Volunteers Association Limited (HKCCVA) (香港卓護義工協會) and Community Health And Medication-safety Promotion Inter-school Outreach Network (CU CHAMPION) (香港中文大學醫學院社區健康及藥物安全外展隊) to provide healthcare services to more than 70 members from 5 elderly service centres, including measuring BMI, blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol, electrocardiogram test, dementia assessment, Health and Living Habits Survey, and health education. Doctors, nurses and pharmacists also provided the elders professional advices on their health and drug management. Volunteers were energetically involved in serving the elders, who also actively participated in the programme.
