Regulation of Chinese Medicine Practitioners > Discipline of Chinese Medicine Practitioners

Under section 98 of the Chinese Medicine Ordinance, the Chinese Medicine Practitioners Board of the Chinese Medicine Council is empowered to deal with disciplinary matters of registered Chinese medicine practitioners. Registered Chinese medicine practitioners are required to comply with the "Code of Practice for Registered Chinese Medicine Practitioners" as compiled by the Chinese Medicine Practitioners Board. If a registered Chinese medicine practitioner is alleged to be guilty of misconduct in any professional respect or has been convicted of any offence punishable with imprisonment, the Chinese Medicine Practitioners Board may hold inquiry and take disciplinary action against the registered Chinese medicine practitioner concerned. Disciplinary actions may include removing of the name of the practitioner concerned from the Register of Registered Chinese Medicine Practitioners, reprimanding the practitioner or issuing of a warning letter to the practitioner.

Listed Chinese medicine practitioners are also required to comply with the "Code of Practice for Listed Chinese Medicine Practitioners". If a listed Chinese medicine practitioner fails to comply with the Code during his course of practice, the Chinese Medicine Practitioners Board may remove from the list maintained by the Board the name of the listed Chinese medicine practitioner concerned in accordance with section 91 of the Chinese Medicine Ordinance.

The "Code of Professional Conduct for Registered Chinese Medicine Practitioners in Hong Kong" and the "Code of Conduct for Listed Chinese Medicine Practitioners" can be downloaded from this homepage.

If a member of the public is not satisfied with the practice or conduct of any registered Chinese medicine practitioner or listed Chinese medicine practitioner, he may lodge a complaint (complaint procedures) to the Practitioners Board in writing and send to the Secretariat of the Chinese Medicine Council.
