The Deputy Chairman of the junior doctors committee of the British Medical Association (BMA) has called homeopathy “witchcraft” and “nonsense on stilts”, whilst the BMA conference declared in 2010 that homeopathy has “no place in the modern health service”.

The NHS Choices website states that “there is no good-quality evidence that homeopathy is effective as a treatment for any health condition”, whilst the BMA's director of science and ethics, Dr Vivienne Nathanson, has said that “the funding of the homeopathic hospital should stop”.

It is therefore requested that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde withdraw funding for Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital.
