Poison Treatment Centre

The Poison Treatment Centre at PWH (PWHPTC) was jointly established in 2005 by the HA and the Faculty of Medicine of CUHK. While poison treatment service is provided by all public hospitals, the Poison Treatment Centre at PWH functions as the tertiary referral centre especially for patients with unusual poisoning. It is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of doctors and nurses led by a consultant physician (clinical toxicologist). It also provides expert information and consultative services on the management of poisoning.
