Position statements

The Society expects professionalism in every aspect of Homeopathy practice. RSHoms will encourage patients to maintain a relationship with their GP and other healthcare professionals involved in their care.

The Society does not endorse the use of protocols dedicated to specific named conditions. RSHoms must not suggest that they are capable of a complete cure, or promote such protocols for named conditions including, for example, CEASE therapy.

The Society does not endorse the use of homeopathic medicines as an alternative to vaccination for the prevention of serious infectious diseases. RSHoms must not offer homeoprophylaxis, provide advice on, or actively participate in a patient’s decisions regarding vaccination.

The Society encourages clarity for the public regarding the credibility of its registered homeopaths. RSHoms claiming expertise in a specialist area must evidence relevant qualifications or experience.

Advice for the Public

Homeopaths are not able to offer advice on vaccination and the Society recommends that members of the public seek the advice of their GP and/or relevant Department of Health guidelines concerning vaccination and protection against disease whilst travelling.
