New NGO set up to defuse hospital-patient disputes

An NGO was established in Beijing to provide free consultation and mediation services for medical disputes.
The NGO, Beijing Jinghan Medical Disputes Mediation and Law Support Center, has a professional team of 60 specialists, including lawyers and medical experts.
These experts, who have no employment or financial inks to hospitals or patients, will provide free consultation or mediation over medical disputes to patients.
A voluntary team was also set up to supervise the operation of the center, with volunteers including legislators and political advisors.
Experts said that the current official mediation over medical disputes was time-consuming.
