英国中医师注册 WHO CAN & HOW and an interview with Professor Man Fong Mei about Statutory Regulation of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture practitioners in the UK英国中
Two articles are included here: 1) an interview with Professor Man Fong Mei on statutory regulation (SR) of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture practitioners in the UK, and 2) an article on the matter of SR in the UK. The latter article (on the right hand side of the page) can also be read on the CMIR website, the CMC website.
Leading TCM professionals have urged practitioners to pay more attention to improving the quality of the services they provide, even as the road ahead seems to be filled with potholes.
Mei Man-fong, vice-chairman of the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies and founder of the AcuMedic Centre, has come down heavily on those who are attempting to “commercialize” the TCM sector.

Uneasy traditional medicine practitioners see light at end of tunnel in new UK regulations
Tucked away in the busy alleyways of Camden High Street in London is AcuMedic, a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) center that has been slowly making waves over the years. Set up in 1972, AcuMedic is now the biggest TCM shop in the UK and has under its wings several departments, a full-fledged clinic with consultation rooms, a bookstore that gives insight into TCM, a shop that sells Chinese health products like green tea and dried chrysanthemum and a pharmacy that sells herbal medicines.
