Whether it is consulting with schools, international business organisations or renowned events such as the Rugby World Cup and Hong Kong Sevens, we are always willing to share our medical knowledge and expertise with local and global communities.
We are also committed to reducing energy use and waste. All OT&P clinics participate in the Earth Hour campaign and have implemented a responsible recycling program.

OT&P Healthcare is a long-time supporter of the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Fund. We conduct a Well Woman campaign in October annually and organise a Pink Day to support and raise funds for those who are fighting breast cancer and their families.
On this day, we encourage all our employees to wear pink, and the company makes a donation on their behalf. We also offer our female employees special prices for women’s health tests and a discount promotion for our patients. We donate a portion of these proceeds for the research of breast cancer treatments.
