The Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine was set up in 1987 to regulate the practice of Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) in the UK and has over 450 members.
We aim to set and maintain high standards in Chinese herbal medicine. Members must have a degree in Chinese herbal medicine, or a qualification that is equivalent to a degree.
In addition, members adhere to a Code of Ethics and have full professional insurance.
The Register is a member of the European Herbal & Traditional Medicine Practitioners Association (EHTPA), an umbrella organisation that for over a decade has called for statutory regulation (SR) for herbal medicine in the UK.
The RCHM is moving to new premises; as 5th May 2016 we will be at:
Suite 5, Sackville Place, 44-48 Magdalen Street, Norwich NR3 1JU.
The new phone number is 01603 927420 or you can send us an email here
