The Society of Homeopaths wants all patients to receive the highest standard of professional care during their homeopathic treatment. Our Code of Ethics and Practice governs ethical and professional behaviour, and sets benchmark standards for best practice in homeopathy.
The codes are binding on all Society of Homeopaths members, who are accountable to the Society for their professional behaviour. We enforce the codes rigorously. If members break the Society’s rules they can have a formal first warning, an action plan or conditions placed on their practice. In more serious cases, members may be suspended or removed from the Society of Homeopaths’ register. Although we are currently a voluntary self-regulating body, our reputation as the lead body for homeopathy in the UK means any sanctions we impose are taken seriously.
