Report to Ministers from the Department of Health steering group on the statutory regulation of practitioners of acupuncture, herbal medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and other traditional medicine systems practised in the UK

The Department of Health Steering Group was established in summer 2006 by Jane Kennedy, then Minister of State at the Department of Health, and was invited to prepare the ground for the regulation of practitioners of acupuncture, herbal medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and other traditional medicine systems practised in the UK.

In particular, the Steering Group was asked to identify issues and propose options in relation to education and training, registration, fitness to practise and other essential aspects of regulation.
