NHS voices about homeopathy & # 39; serious concern & # 39; | Social

The chief executive of NHS expressed his “serious concern” about homeopathy and argued that the practice was “basically flawed”.

Simon Stevens and Stephen Powis, NHS National Medical Director, wrote to the Professional Standards Agency (PSA) for recertification of the Homeopathic Society.

In a letter dated October 22, they said that recognition made a “false impression” that social care was clinically established scientifically.

Stevens and Powis said, “In response to our current consultation, we are writing to register serious concerns about the possibility of recertification of the Homeopathic Association of the Professional Standards Authority.

"While the homeopathic societies may seem to meet some of PSA's procedural standards, the basis of their practice remains fundamentally flawed."

They added that homeopathic remedies have not been scientifically validated and are encouraged to treat health conditions.

Homeopathy Association is the UK's largest registered homeopathic group.

Stevens believed that homeopathy could not replace the tried and tested medical treatment. "Giveing ​​a veneer of trust in homeopathy is likely to allow more people to part with hard-earned money in exchange for risk-taking fakes," the statement said. .

Prince of Wales has long supported the benefits of homeopathic remedies and complementary medicine, and as a result has been criticized by some medical professionals.
