Chinese medicine

On 19 May 2021 the Cabinet Social Wellbeing Committee agreed that an Order in Council be made under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 to designate the Chinese medicine profession (including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and tui na massage therapy) as a health profession and to establish the Chinese Medicine Council as the responsible authority appointed in respect of the health profession (step 8). Nominations for members of the new Chinese Medicine Council will be sought early in 2022.
