At the moment, disturbing happenings are occuring in the UK. My friend Selma (Registered Homeopath) from London sent me this email last week…..
“There is currently a very real campaign against homeopathy in the UK, particularly homeopathy on the NHS. Many homeopathic hospitals around the country, including the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital (UCLH), are under threat of closure. GP’s are being encouraged to stop referrals and therefore patient numbers are dropping, despite continuing demand from the public. Soon, only those able to afford private homeopathic consultations will benefit from this safe, natural & effective 200 year old system of medicine. We should all have the right to choose what kind of treatment we receive and the government should honour their policy of “Patient Choice” within the NHS.
If homeopathy has worked for you and you too feel strongly about freedom of choice in healthcare, please take a minute to sign the online declaration at http://www.homeopathyworkedforme.org. It will be presented to 10 Downing street in June 2008. Please show your support, and pass on to interested friends & family.”
Please consider taking a few minutes of your time to sign the online petition IF you feel Homeopathy has ever helped you. It should be a matter of international concern - who knows what will follow if Homeopathy loses its status in the UK. This is not a time to sit back and wait and watch!
