The School of Chinese Medicine organised the “International Forum on the Development of Hong Kong Chinese Medicine Hospital: Integrative Chinese and Western Medicine” on 29 July. Veteran Chinese medicine experts from around the globe gathered to share their valuable experience on the topic with more than 400 participants.

 

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Cheung Wai-lun, Project Director, Chinese Medicine Hospital Project Office, Food and Health Bureau, said planning has begun for Hong Kong’s first Chinese Medicine Hospital (CMH). He said the CMH will focus on the development of services, such as integrated Chinese and Western medicine services, with Chinese medicine playing the predominant role. Dr Cheung added that the CMH faces several challenges, such as the building of a system and the fostering of a culture which are needed to effectively bring together professionals of different backgrounds to work towards a common goal.
