The third stage consultation period for new Hong Kong Rehabilitation Programme Plan extended
**********************************************************************************

The Rehabilitation Advisory Committee (RAC) will extend the third stage (Consensus Building Stage) public consultation period for a new Hong Kong Rehabilitation Programme Plan (RPP) by six weeks, from the original end date on December 20, 2019 to January 31, 2020. The third stage public consultation period will therefore be extended to a total of 12 weeks. Taking account of stakeholders’ views, the RAC, with the assistance of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University Consulting Team, will arrange three additional public consultation sessions in the regions of Kowloon, Hong Kong Island and New Territories West respectively in January 2020 for members of the public and stakeholders to provide their views on the strategic directions and recommendations of the new RPP.

Introduction


In 2017, the Government has tasked the Rehabilitation Advisory Committee to formulate the Rehabilitation Programme Plan (RPP) in two years. A consulting team led by the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (the Consulting Team) was commissioned to assist the formulation of the new RPP. The Consulting Team is consisted of different scholars from each department under the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Throughout the process, public engagement events will be held to gather opinions from relevant stakeholders and other interest parties. The public can register for public engagement activities, submit opinion and check relevant information through this online platform.
There are three stages of public engagement, namely Scoping, Formulation and Consensus Building.
