The Jockey Club Affordable Outpatient Services Subsidy Scheme

Since the start of the fifth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, over 30 GOPCs have been converted to designated COVID-19 clinics or suspended services, resulting in a shortage of affordable consultation services.  While fighting the pandemic, it is equally important that the non-COVID-19 medical needs of the needy should continue to be provided for.  

The Jockey Club Affordable Outpatient Services Subsidy Scheme (“the Scheme”), a collaboration between The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust (the “Trust”), Christian Family Service Centre and non-profit-making/private clinics, aims to provide affordable outpatient services to eligible non-COVID-19 patients.  The Scheme will be conducted from 24th March 2022 to 30th September 2022, and completed whenever quota finished.

Under the Scheme, five NGOs, namely Christian Family Service Centre, the Hong Kong Society for Rehabilitation, Pok Oi Hospital, Lok Sin Tong Benevolent Society, Kowloon and Aberdeen Kai-Fong Welfare Association have engaged non-profit-making and private clinics to offer affordable outpatient services. Eligible persons can receive a medical consultation and basic medication for three days for a fee of HK$50. The Club’s Charities Trust will provide a subsidy of HK$250 for each patient, with the remaining costs to be covered by the clinics.  Enquiry Hotline:  5243 3747
