NHS England Consultation on Homeopathic Medicines
In 2017, NHS England held a public consultation on homeopathic medicines. Unopposed, this could see the NHS abolish prescriptions of all Homeopathic and Herbal medicines.
We are now in the final weeks of the BHA’s parliamentary petition: Stop NHS England from removing herbal and homeopathic medicines. Please help us reach our goal of pushing for a debate in parliament about homeopathy and herbal medicines.
- Find out more about this consultation
- Get all the facts
- Act now, and:
- Sign the petition to save Homeopathy and Herbal medicines (the petition closes 13th March 2018)
- Write to your MP
- And, very importantly, share this information with your friends!

UPDATE (3rd November): Keep the pressure on NHS England
UPDATE (6th November): The BHA launches a legal process seeking a Judicial Review of the NHS England consultation
UPDATE (27th November): The BHA crowd-funding campaign reaches its target! Additional funds will go towards work being done to defend and clarify the case with the court.
UPDATE (29th November): The BHA crowd-funding campaign reaches its target! Additional funds will go towards work being done to defend and clarify the case with the court.
UPDATE (30th November): NHS England decides that homeopathic, herbal, and other complementary medicines should not be prescribed. The BHA are still going ahead with their legal challenge, calling for a judicial review of the NHS England consultation. You can still help by signing our parliamentary petition, and by raising awareness of this issue.
UPDATE (28th February): With only 2 weeks to go before our parliamentary petition closes, we appeal to you to help us with one last push for signatures, so that we can force a debate in Parliament on this important issue.
Threat to Animal Homeopathic Treatments by the RCVS
The Council of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is effectively threatening legal action, under the Animal Welfare Act, if a vet or owner use homeopathy or other complementary medicines.
Unopposed, and out of the protection of EU law, the corporate pharmaceutical industry could reign supreme.

This spring, the Charity Commission (CC) had conducted a public consultation on whether organisations promoting the use of complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) should have charitable status.
We expect the results of the consultation to be announced in the autumn of 2017.
