    Date : 2024-02-07

    Dear Fellows and Members,

    Our College announces with great sorrow our loss of a beloved Honorary Fellow.

    Professor Lau Wan Yee Joseph passed away in the morning on 7th February 2024 in the Union Hospital. Professor Lau served as the President of our College from 1996 to 1999. His foresight and dedication were instrumental in driving the expansion of our College and establishing the robust foundation that supports our present-day accomplishments. The loss of Professor Lau will leave a profound void within our surgical community. His contributions will be remembered, and his absence will be deeply felt.

    On behalf of our College, we extend our sincerest condolences to Professor Lau's family during this difficult time. May they find solace in the knowledge that his legacy will continue to inspire and guide future generations.

    Yours faithfully,

    Prof. Kent-man CHU
