On July 1 this year, the Medical Administration and Hospital Authority of the Health and Health Commission issued the notice of the first batch of national key monitoring and rational drug use drugs (chemical drugs and biological products), formally proposing that doctors of other categories except traditional Chinese medicine, after systematically studying the professional knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine for no less than one year and passing the examination, can prescribe proprietary Chinese medicine in accordance with the basic clinical principles of traditional Chinese medicine. This new policy was interpreted by the industry as "Western medicine can not open Chinese herbal medicine and proprietary Chinese medicine".
