HK, Guangdong measure welcomed

The Government welcomed an announcement by Guangdong on the recruitment of Hong Kong Chinese medicine practitioners (CMPs) by public healthcare institutions in the Mainland cities of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.   The Traditional Chinese Medicine Bureau of Guangdong Province today announced that Hong Kong CMPs will be recruited within 2021, on contract terms, by selected pilot sites of public Chinese medicine healthcare institutions in Guangzhou and Shenzhen.   The recruitment procedures, as well as terms and conditions of employment, will be determined by the relevant healthcare institutions. The authorities will take into account the implementation situation when considering whether the scope of the pilot sites should be expanded.   Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government welcomes the measure and expressed gratitude to the relevant authorities of the central government and the province for their staunch support to the development of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong.   “The measure enables Hong Kong CMPs to further their practice within the national healthcare system, thereby promoting exchanges in Chinese medicine and providing Hong Kong CMPs, in particular the younger generation, with the opportunity to pursue development in the bay area."   Under Hong Kong’s Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement with the Mainland and relevant supplementary agreements, a series of policies has been in place to enable Hong Kong CMPs to practise Chinese medicine and establish healthcare institutions in the Mainland, Prof Chan added.   “The latest arrangement allows Hong Kong CMPs to practise in Mainland public healthcare institutions, thereby expanding their scope for development.”
