House of Commons - Evidence Check 2: Homeopathy - Science ...
09-10 Session Commons publication
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 ...

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

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 ...

Homeopathy and the consolidation of UK medicines ...
Commons library
In 2010 the Science and Technology Select Committee examined Government policy on homeopathy. It found that homeopathic products are placebos, it questioned whether their use in the NHS was ethical and it called for changes to their regulation. The report received vociferous support and opposition from a number of groups. The Government responded that it agreed with “many” of the ...

House of Commons - Evidence Check 2: Homeopathy - Science ...
09-10 Session Commons publication
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 ...

09-10 Session Commons publication
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 ...

Findings in 44% of those RCTs reported positive findings, 8% were negative and 48% were non-conclusive. The majority of trials have examined standardised homeopathy and used placebo-controlled design ...

09-10 Session Commons publication
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 ...

09-10 Session Commons publication
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 ...

Anti-homeopathy groups such as the so-called Good Thinking Society, which is a front for one individual, a sceptic called Simon Singh, are threatening clinical commissioning groups with legal action for commissioning homeopathy. People such as Simon Singh are anti-patient, anti-choice and closed-minded individuals who have never studied or used homeopathy. In the UK, we have a robust system of ...

This can be seen here. 1Project to consolidate and review UK medicines legislation, MHRA website, viewed 12 ...

Homeopathy and epidemics - Extensive medical records exist, recording the efficacy of homeopathy in the treatment of epidemics. For example, homeopathy's success at treating the Spanish flu outbreak of 1918 is well documented, especially in the US. The medical records of hospitals across the country consistently show a mortality rate of above 28% in sufferers treated allopathically, as opposed ...
