Third of trusts still fund homeopathy18th February 2011
Evidence has shown that a third of NHS trusts still fund homeopathy despite calls for them to stop.
GP magazine obtained data from two thirds of primary care trusts, showing 31% were paying for patients to use the remedies. The findings comes after doctors and the House of Commons' Health Committee called for NHS funding of homeopathy to end, although the government has said that it is still down to local trusts to decide. The British Homeopathic Association said NHS spending on homeopathy was justified.
