Medical Benefit Scheme for Christian Pastoral Staff

Introduction

Origin
The Hong Kong Christian Medical & Dental Fellowship (hereinafter referred to as the Fellowship) has been concerned with the health maintenance of the pastoral staff ministering in church and organization. It is not unusual to find a pastoral staff in his/her demanding ministry not being able to get medical treatment at times of physical illness. What may appear to be minor illness can sometimes lead to a more serious health crisis if the symptom is ignored or overlooked.
In reality, however, there is a dilemma in getting specialized medical services: Either a long waiting time for public service or a high charge for private service. The members of the Fellowship are thankful to God for granting us opportunities to serve the society; and they want to show their gratefulness to their ministers for their pastoral and spiritual care. We also believe that better monitoring of their health is a great blessing of the churches.
Therefore, the Fellowship joins hands with the Association of Hong Kong Hospital Christian Chaplaincy Ministry (AHKHCCM) in this MBSCPS project.
Mission

Service members of the MBSCPS are committed to serving the pastoral staff with professionalism and in Christian love. We will provide high quality and responsible specialized medical service. We operate under the non profit-making principle. As of 2009, we have a total of 32 medical doctors participating as service members. Their specializations are dentistry, internal medicine, surgery, general practice, nephrology, cardiology, E.N.T, ophthalmology, orthopedics, neurology, paediatrics, gynaecology, psychiatry. We will invite more Christian doctors to join in as our fellow service members.

Implementation

All serving outlets are members of the Fellowship. Any pastoral staff who wishes to join the MBSCPS can register through the AHKHCCM. After an applicant's status has been verified, we will issue a MBSCPS card and send the MBSCPS doctors' list to him/her and his/her family members. No fees will be charged for registration.
