Sir John Beddington describes NHS funding of homeopathy as 'crazy' in spite of being supportive of the Government's position on homeopathy and alternative medicine in 2009.
The concerted attack on homeopathy continues. Letters using insulting and denigrating language continue to be published in the letters section of the BMJ. At the political level though, support remains strong for NHS homeopathy.
Prime Minister says he's going to sound like a homepathy in describing looking at the whole patient. The whole patient being the NHS. Most major politicians in favour of NHS homeopathy but media horrifically biased against it. Controversial anti-depressants hit all time in being prescribed on the NHS
In an extraordinary statement, the Chief Scientific Advisor to the Government turns against NHS homeopathy. GPs who use homeopathy are likely to find his comment somewhat insulting.
Critics of NHS homeopathy are livid about the Government's decision to back NHS homeopathy and will probably regroup and attack again. They cannot understand how democracy has trumped their scientism but democracy is democracy.
