A medical group received approval to be registered in Shenzhen last Friday in what is seen as a major step in medical reform.

Best uniMed becomes the first medical group in the country to have got business license so far.

Medical group, a kind of organization consisting of medical teams, was once forbidden to be registered commercially in China.

Doctors in the medical group are able to provide services in different places instead of limiting their work just to one hospital under the current system, thereby enhancing efficiency.

By cooperating with different hospitals, the group takes advantages of their physical space to offer services.

"Granting business license to a group is a major step forward in medical reform," said Lin Feng, president of Best uniMed.

"There will be greater flow of medical practitioners and medical resources will be expanded."

So far, more than 300 doctors have already registered under the group.

Promoting free practice among doctors is beneficial for realizing their value and making medical care available to more areas, an official from Health and Family Planning Commission of Shenzhen Municipality said.

"We will continue to provide full support for media groups to develop in Shenzhen," the official said.
