To enhance the transparency of health service delivery, waiting time for new case bookings at orthopaedics specialist out-patient clinics (SOPC) has been posted on the website of the Hospital Authority (HA) since July 31, 2014. The map shows the distribution of orthopaedics SOPCs and the waiting time for a new clinically stable orthopaedic patient by HA hospital clusters.

As indicated by pushpin symbols, there are currently 19 orthopaedics SOPCs in 7 hospital clusters. The size of the pushpins varies by the number of out-patient attendances in 2012/2013. The number of out-patient attendances was relatively evenly distributed in SOPCs in Kowloon West cluster. In other HA clusters, cases were clustered in some larger regional hospitals.

As depicted by graduated colours, the difference in waiting time for a newly referred orthopaedic case to receive specialist consultation could be more than 80 weeks. Population structure and variation of resource allocation may have affected the demand and supply for orthopaedics services, and consequently the waiting time for patients.

Data for the map were obtained from Hospital Authority.

為提高供應公共醫療服務的透明度,骨科專科門診新症的輪候時間已於2014年7月31日起上載於香港醫院管理局的網頁。地圖顯示本港各醫院聯網轄下的骨科門診診所的分佈,以及情況穩定的骨科新症所需的輪候時間。

依圖中圖釘符號所示,現時本港7個醫院聯網內共有19間醫院或診所提供骨科專科門診服務。圖釘大小顯示出各骨科門診診所於2012至2013年度的就診人次。九龍西聯網內各骨科門診診所的就診人次較為平均,相反其他聯網的骨科診症多集中於區內其中一間較大型的醫院。

依圖中顏色所示,各醫院聯網的穩定骨科新症所需的輪候週數可相差超過80週。各地區不同人口結構及各聯網的醫療資源分配均直接影響骨科專科門診服務的供求,從而影響病人所需的輪候時間。
