Homeopathy on the NHS. 19. When doctors prescribe placebos, they risk damaging the trust that exists between them and their patients. (Paragraph 97) 20. For patient choice to be real choice, patients must be adequately informed to understand the implications of treatments. For homeopathy this would certainly require an explanation that homeopathy is a placebo. When this is not done, patient ...

Evidence Check 2: Homeopathy 5 2 NHS funding and provision What is homeopathy? 9. Homeopathy is a 200-year old system of medicine that seeks to treat patients with highly diluted substances that are administered orally. Homeopathy is based on two principles: “like-cures-like” whereby a substance that causes a symptom is used in diluted form to

Government policy on the funding of homeopathy through the NHS; and the evidence base on homeopathic products and services. 4. This inquiry was an examination of the evidence behind government policies on homeopathy, not an inquiry into homeopathy. We do not challenge the intentions of those homeopaths who strive to cure patients, nor do we question that many people feel they have benefited ...

For homeopathy this would certainly require an explanation that homeopathy is a placebo. When this is not done, patient choice is meaningless. When it is done, the effectiveness of the placebo—that is, homeopathy—may be diminished. We argue that the provision of homeopathy on the NHS, in effect, diminishes, not increases, informed patient choice. Personal health budgets. 102. In this ...

The antis also claim that there is no scientific evidence that homeopathy works, but of the 189 randomised control trials up to 2014, 41% were positive, finding that homeopathy was effective. The figures for conventional medicine are just about the same, at 44%. There is no difference. There is good statistical evidence that both homeopathy and conventional medicine work.

By providing homeopathy on the NHS and allowing MHRA licensing of products which subsequently appear on pharmacy shelves, the Government runs the risk of endorsing homeopathy as an efficacious system of medicine. To maintain patient trust, choice and safety, the Government should not endorse the use of placebo treatments, including homeopathy. Homeopathy should not be funded on the NHS and the ...

The MHRA approved label on homeopathy sugar pills is misleading. A great deal of effort has gone into making patient literature, leaflets, and labels more easily understood, explaining the benefits and risks of treatments clearly, so it seems perverse and anomalous that the MHRA have settled on a plainly misleading convention for labelling these homeopathic sugar pills. The MHRA may deploy ...

Either homeopathy is an evidence-based treatment subject to the same tests as conventional treatments or it is a placebo and should therefore be subject to NHS policy on placebos. The problem is, however, that it appears the NHS has no policy on placebos. The placebo effect is unreliable and addresses symptoms not the causes of illness. The use of placebos also poses serious ethical issues as ...
