Student Health Service


The Student Health Service was introduced by the Department of Health in the school year 1995/1996. It aims to safeguard both the physical and psychological health of students through health promotion and disease prevention services, enabling them to gain the maximum benefit from the education system and develop their full potential.

The Student Health Service provides centre-based services and outreach programmes (Adolescent Health Programme).

Student Health Service Centres

Services provided

Student Health Service Centres started to provide services in 1995. Enrolled students will be given an annual appointment for health assessment at a Student Health Service Centre to receive services meeting the health needs at various stages of their development. These services include physical examination; screening for health problems related to growth, nutrition, blood pressure, vision, hearing, spine, psychological health and behaviour; individual health counselling and health education. Students found to have problems will be referred to the Special Assessment Centres of the Student Health Service, specialist clinics of the Hospital Authority or other institutions for detailed assessment, follow-up or treatment.

* The Student Health Service is a health promotion and disease prevention programme. Students who need curative service may seek medical treatment from the General Out-Patient Clinics of the Hospital Authority or their own private practitioners. For students with academic problems, they or their parents should seek advice from teachers or student guidance officers.


The service is offered to all primary and secondary day school students. Students can enrol through their schools at the beginning of each school year in September. Enrolled students will be given an annual appointment for health assessment at a designated Student Health Service Centre. The service is free to eligible students. For non-eligible students, an annual fee will be charged.
