When the phrase “healthcare in China” is spoken among expats, usually the first statement sounds something like, “I go to the doctor in Hong Kong for anything big.” While that may be the preferred method of handling all things medical for some living here, the fact is that a trip to Hong Kong may not always be convenient, possible or medically suitable. It always makes sense to have as many options available as possible. One place to find English speaking staff is at Shekou People’s Hospital’s Expert Center Clinic.
They have a doctor named Dr. Peggy Mingli that studied and worked in Australia. She is on call 24 hours to assist anyone needing translation help, although there are several other doctors associated with the clinic that speak English.
For out-patient medical help, the Experts Center Clinics include:
– Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
– Chronic Pain
Go to the reception desk and ask for the specialty you need. The receptionists there know enough English to show you where to go. Always ask for an English speaking doctor.
