Following Dr Wong’s application to appeal the decision taken by the Hong Kong Medical Council, Dr Ming Teoh said:
“Medical Protection has been working closely with Dr Wong to ensure the best outcome for him in light of the disappointing decision taken by the Hong Kong Medical Council.
Following discussions with legal experts, Dr Wong has chosen to appeal the decision of the Medical Council and we will be offering him our full support in doing so.
Medical Protection fully understands the healthcare community is concerned by the potential implications of the Medical Council’s decision.
We have long advocated an open culture of learning and improvement rather than one of blame for professionals when something goes wrong.”
