The Chinese "doctor", named Tang Le Phan in Vietnamese, are working at Viet My healthcare clinic at No.620 Hoang Hoa Tham Street, said Nguyen Viet Cuong, chief inspector of the Department of Health.
According to Cuong, the clinic previously registered a Chinese doctor with the Vietnamese name of Vi Kim Duc, and the man has returned to China.
However, the department has just recorded a profile of the female "doctor” working at the clinic without registering to the department for official license.
The recent two-week inspection launched by the health department in 8 Chinese clinics in the city have found that all of them violating the rules, including some acts of recidivism, Cuong said.
Viet Hai Clinic, for example, has been found selling drugs without a brand name. It was fined in September 2011 for the same violation.
More unlicensed Chinese doctors have been found illegally practicing at Clinic 455 and 981 Giai Phong, he added.
All the aforementioned violations have been fined VND200 million for each case.
Heftier penalties should be imposed for those clinics since the current highest level of administrative sanctions for unlicensed practice is only VND20 million, Cuong cited the viewpoint of Nguyen Van Tien, Deputy Chairman of the Committee of Social Affairs of the National Assembly, as saying.
