In 2011, Ningbo took the lead in implementing the pilot work of family doctor signing services. Starting from May 1, 2015, we fully implemented the family doctor system with the linkage of medical care, medical insurance, medicine, and medical pricing as the main symbols. In the past decade, more and more residents in Ningbo have had their own family doctors.

In the past 10 years of providing family doctor services, Ningbo has built a team of family doctors with strong business capabilities, who are very popular among the people. It is learned that there are 1058 three-star, 357 four-star, and 60 five-star family doctors among the more than 4000 family doctors in the city.
