No explanation for delayed medical blunder report concerns lawmaker Listen
Civic Party lawmaker Kwok Ka-ki says he’s concerned that it took so long for the United Christian Hospital to report a medical blunder to the Hospital Authority. An investigation by the authority blamed a lack of vigilance by doctors for a medical error at the hospital which left a patient’s liver in such poor condition she needed a transplant. Kwok said there was a delay of 19 days before the hospital informed the authority, and then another 19 days passed before the blunder was made public. He told Annemarie Evans that it was disappointing that the investigation panel hadn’t explained why the system hadn’t worked as expected.
Green group warns of increasing energy consumption Listen

William Yu from the group told Jim Gould that if no action is taken on the energy use of data centres, they'll become what he calls "time bombs".
