衞生署:視乎藥物風險水平才向外公布消息

Let me translate: Disclosure of such incidences is not including the DOH standard operating procedure manual. Therefore DOH doesn't know how to handle it. DOH will call a committee to devise a plan to deal with it in near future and it shall require addition legislations and empowerment of the government bureaucracies.

衞生署:視乎藥物風險水平才向外公布消息

衞生署總藥劑師陳永健表示,萬輝藥業主動回收藥物當日,已通知署方,被問到署方為何不收到通知後,立即向公眾公布,陳永健回應,署方要完成調查才會公布。

至於應否在收到通知後立即公布,他表示,要視乎有關的藥物風險水平,如果涉及藥力強,或是醫治高危疾病的藥物,署方會第一時間公布。

至於今次涉及的216款藥物,都屬於低風險,署方認為可以等待有調查結果後,才向市民公布。
