NHS drops homeopathy

30th January 2008

Research has shown that NHS primary care trusts have cut funding for homeopathic treatment.

The investigation, by GP’s magazine Pulse, questioned 132 PCTs and found only 37% still have contracts for homeopathic services amid a decrease in referrals. The fall in funding coincides with cost cutting by PCTs but also comes two years after prominent doctors urged the NHS to stop funding homeopathic treatment in favour of evidence-based medicine.

The UK’s largest centre, the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital said its referrals had dropped by 20% and it has lost eight contracts but says it will survive.
