    I just found out you have to go to the govt hospital that's in the zone of your residential address. I wanted to register for prenatal checkup today at Eastern Hospital and was told of this new way of assigning patients.

    Zoning by address is not a 'new' policy - it's been in place for at least five years, and is states clearly on the websites of both the Hospital Authority, and of the iindividual hospitals.

    Elaine.

    I just called the Hospital to try and register and they told me that I can only register if I live on HK Island or one of the Outlying Islands. Are you in Kowloon?

    Your friend probably used someone else's address.

    I'm still finding my way around the government hospitals too. I live in Clearwater Bay and went to Tsan Yuk on Hong Kong Island for my first check up. They didn't say anything to me about living too far away. In the end I decided it was too inconvenient and have registered at Tseung Kwan O and will deliver at United Christian Hospital. Problem is they have no antinatal classes in English. Also, I don't know anyone who has been there and would feel reassured if anyone has any info on UCH??
