The homeopathy world is challenging NHS England over its ‘consultation’ to end prescribing homeopathic remedies.

The Society has been working with 4Homeopathy in campaigning hard in opposition to the plans and the British Homeopathy Society (BHA) has commenced an application for judicial review on the basis that the consultation ’was fundamentally flawed from the outset, in that the proposal was not formulated with input from any homeopathy experts or practitioners; it was not a genuine attempt to engage consultees (a decision having been ostensibly predetermined) and did not provide consultees with adequate information on which to provide a considered and informed response’.

The judicial review seeks, among other things, a declaration that NHS England has acted unlawfully in relation to its proposals, its failure to consult on them properly and to listen to patients.

The costs of legal action are high and various organisations are contributing to the costs.  The Society of Homeopaths has pledged £5000.  A crowd funding website has also been established to contribute  to the costs https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/save-homeopathy-on-the-nhs/

Homeopaths, patients and supporters of patient choice are being encouraged to donate whatever they feel they can afford.
