It has been suggested that the NHS may integrate traditional Chinese cures with Western medical techniques.
Chinese medicine could be available on the NHS if there is enough evidence to prove that it would benefit patients, Jeremy Hunt has suggested.
Mr Hunt, whose wife is Chinese, says that his fequent trips to China have taught him that it is important to “follow the scientific evidence” concerning Chinese medicine.
He said that taxpayers’ money would not be spent on the traditional techniques without “good evidence” that they would be beneficial.
