Our Hong Kong Foundation: Chinese Medicine Culture Promotion Scattered Uncoordinated

Ip Man-kei, Vice President of Our Hong Kong Foundation, said that Chinese medicine has played a major role in the fight against the epidemic, coupled with the Hong Kong government and the country respectively formulating the blueprint for the development of Chinese medicine, the construction of Chinese medicine hospitals, and mentioning the development of Chinese medicine in the 14th Five-Year Plan, bluntly said that now is a good time to promote the development of Chinese medicine. Our Hong Kong Foundation researcher Chow Ka Chun pointed out that Chinese medicine culture has a deep heritage and is closely related to life, and at present, cultural promotion is scattered in all walks of life, and herbal tea shops, herbal medicine shops, Lei Sheng Chuntang, etc. are seen in Zhou Street, but there is no coordination.

He suggested launching a cultural promotion programme of "Passing on Chinese Medicine to Hong Kong", and joining hands with the business community, civil society, the Government, medical groups and academics to organise a series of diversified activities, such as Chinese medicine experience, free consultations, outreach services, medicinal food tasting, and health care services for the public in line with solar terms. In terms of cultural tourism integration, it is recommended to plan Chinese medicine health tourism routes such as Leisheng Spring Hall, Chinese Medicine Museum, and Chinese Medicine Cultural Health Center. In terms of education and publicity, it is proposed to set up a Chinese Medicine Youth Promotion Ambassador Programme, Chinese Medicine Culture and Health Seminars, etc.

Initiating a Public-Private Partnership Scheme on Chinese Medicine"

The total number of visits to Chinese medicine clinics teaching and research centres increased by nearly 5% to 1,518,636 in the three years of the epidemic, and the proportion of Chinese medicine services in the total service of elderly medical vouchers also rose from 2017.24% in 69 to 2022.39% in 43. To enhance the interaction between TCM practitioners and other healthcare professionals, he also suggested that "systematic" primary care training in TCM and require TCM practitioners participating in government-funded projects to join the Primary Care Guidelines and register for EC Health.

For the salary of Chinese medicine practitioners is much lower than that of Western medicine, Lam believes that this is due to the fact that most Chinese medicine practitioners in Hong Kong are in private practice, so their remuneration is affected by market demand. (Photo by Wen Rui)

Lin Beiyin expects more TCM practitioners to join Yijiantong

Lam Beiyi, Vice President of the Hong Kong Registered Chinese Medicine Association, explained that the previous policy did not have sufficient incentives to attract Chinese medicine practitioners to join MedHealth, and Chinese medicine practitioners were less likely to use electronic medical records and were not accustomed to using computers. She believes that with the addition of more types of primary medical services in the future, more TCM practitioners will join the Primary Care Guidelines and MediCareton.

Referring to the fact that the salary of Chinese medicine practitioners is much lower than that of Western medicine, Lam believes that this is due to the fact that most Chinese medicine practitioners in Hong Kong are in private practice, so their salary is affected by market demand, on the contrary, Western doctors mostly work in the public market and have clear salary scales, she believes that with the completion of Chinese medicine hospitals, the salary of Chinese medicine practitioners in Hong Kong will be adjusted.
