He says this is going to worsen the already heavy workload that doctors are facing. Hospital Authority figures show 8.6 percent of pathologists at public hospitals resigned last year. The turnover rate was the highest of all medical specialties. Lam tells Jim Gould that the measures taken by the Hospital Authority to address the shortage of doctors aren't working either.
