Board of Governors

Dr. the Hon Leong Che-hung GBM, GBS, OBE, JP    (Chairman)

“Today it is not death or illness that are patients’ main concerns: it is the fear of the unknown, the prospect of pain and the uncertainty that most demoralise. Maggie’s Centre attempts to relieve those uncertainties by providing information about cancer in general and their own illness, communities of support and professional advice to help them cope with physical, practical and emotional challenges that a cancer diagnosis brings about. With further support we look forward to more such centres providing a new generation of cancer care.”

Dr. Leong is currently the Chairman of Standard Working Hours Committee and the Chairman / President of several non-profit organisations.
