SFH on Chinese medicine hospital

     Following is the transcript of remarks made by the Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Ko Wing-man, after officiating at the Joyful Fruit Month 2014 launch ceremony today (March 27):

Secretary for Food and Health: The Government has established a committee on the development of Chinese medicine. The committee has made a recommendation of developing a Chinese medicine hospital to the Government. The Government has accepted this recommendation and the Chief Executive has announced in the Policy Address that we will reserve a piece of land in Tseung Kwan O for the purpose of developing a Chinese medicine hospital. Right now, the Hospital Authority has been invited to test out the clinical model of collaboration between Western and Chinese medical practitioners for use in the future Chinese medicine hospital.

Reporter: (On the Chinese medicine hospital.)

Secretary for Food and Health: Certainly in future, this Chinese medicine hospital will be a hospital providing clinical services, a platform for training and education of Chinese medicine (practitioners) as well as clinical research. We would of course invite all universities which have an interest in the development of Chinese medicine to take part in the work of the future Chinese medicine hospital.
