The UK Government has officially confirmed homeopathy's continuing role in the NHS - ensuring that patients can continue to benefit from it.
The Government response states that 'local NHS and clinicians, rather than Whitehall, are best placed to make decisions on what treatment is appropriate for their patients - including complementary or alternative treatments such as homeopathy - and provide accordingly for those treatments.'
A statement from Dr. Sarah Eames, President of the Faculty of Homeopathy states: 'As a doctor who practices homeopathy on the NHS, I know homeopathy is an important part of our health service helping tens of thousands of patients annually, a majority of whom have not been helped sufficiently with conventional treatments. I am pleased to see the government, contrary to the recommendations of the Science and Technology's report, agrees that homeopathy has a place in the NHS and offers choice to both patients and local purchasers of healthcare.'
