Save NHS Homeopathy Update
Jul 16, 2015 — Dear Homeopathy Supporters,
I am writing to give you an overview of the latest news on homeopathy in the NHS.
Firstly, the Bristol Homeopathic Hospital will be leaving the South Bristol Community Hospital, to go the Portland Centre for Integrative Medicine in Bristol, headed by Dr. Elizabeth Thompson. http://portlandcentre.healthcare/
"University Hospitals Bristol NHS Trust has announced that a range of services offered from the community hospital are to be transferred to a new independent social enterprise called the Portland Centre for Integrative Medicine in October." This very negative article, taken practically word for word from a 'Good Thinking Society' skeptic press release appeared in the Bristol Evening Post in June. http://bit.ly/1IIQlGs
Regarding the Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital (Centre for Integrated Care), homeopathy is still being practised there and efforts are being made to keep this going but I will keep you informed.
A head to head debate between Dr. Peter Fisher, the Queen's homeopath and Prof. Edzard Ernst was published in the British Medical Journal on 14th July. You can listen to it here: http://bit.ly/1HAa0Dk and leave your comments here: http://bit.ly/1RBevrn Please scroll down that last link to vote in the Poll 'Should Doctors Recommend Homeopathy?' (on the right hand side), where currently the Yes vote is winning!
Straight after this debate a rather good article was published in the Daily Telegraph concerning it, for once putting our opinion first and our detractor's second!
Queen's physician calls for more homeopathy on NHS
You might want to watch this absolutely excellent video about a homeopathic practitioner who worked for 14 years in a GP surgery in Somerset! This ended when NHS funding changed but for a few years afterwards the GPs dug into their own pockets to keep him on, as they were so impressed! http://bit.ly/1HH3vnJ
You can also watch Dr. Noel Thomas, a GP based in South Wales, outlining his views on the benefits that Homeopathy offers a modern GP Practice. http://bit.ly/1gDm9kc and here are all Prince Charles' letters to the Blair government calling for more homeopathy on the NHS http://dailym.ai/1QfqLgz
In addition, there is a 2 minute video of David Balen of Balen & Co., saying in the last 25 years after millions of treatment, the amount of claims against homeopaths have been negligible or non-existent. http://bit.ly/1OgtykN
Lastly, the Petition to Save NHS Homeopathy has nearly reached 30,000 signatures! Please get more people to sign it, so we achieve this figure!
