Shanghai, Nov 24 (CTK special correspondent) – A clinic of Chinese traditional medicine is to open soon in the Czech Republic, Roman Prymula, director of the hospital in Hradec Kralove, east Bohemia, has told CTK.
The money to construct the building for ten million euros will be provided by the Shangai-based CEFC company that announced major investments in the Czech Republic in the past weeks.
A surgery of Chinese traditional medicine is already working in the hospital in Hradec Kralove.
The agreement on the construction of the new building will be signed during Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka’s ongoing visit to China later this week.
The health facility in Hradec Kralove cooperates with the Chinese hospital Shuguang in which Sobotka spoke with doctors and patients yesterday.
“Undoubtedly, Chinese traditional medicine is a novelty in the Czech Republic. Now we only operate a surgery. Based on the agreement we will sign we are planning the opening of a whole ward,” Prymula said, adding that Czech patients themselves will pay for the treatment.
Turning to the possible opposition of the public to the Chinese traditional medicine Prymula said the reactions varied.
“We are fighting the doctors’ chamber that holds an absolutely rigid, probably useless view as we do not want to replace classical medicine with this Chinese traditional medicine. We want to use it in a complementary way,” Prymula said.
Director of the Chinese hospital Zhou Hua said it was a good thing that Sobotka had already visited the hospital in Hradec Kralove and now also paid a visit to Shanghai.
The cooperation of the Czech Republic and China in the development of Chinese medicine is now in a crucial period, Zhou Hua said.
Czech Health Minister Svatopluk Nemecek has visited the Shanghai hospital for the second time.
“The facility is specific in combining the traditional Chinese medicine with classical Western medicine. One can see that patients are interested in both,” Nemecek said.
