How you can help
1. Write to your MP.
Make your MP aware of why he/she should back NHS funding for homeopathy and your concerns about the recent unjustified attacks on homeopathy. You can use our sample letter as a guide. It is always a good idea to give some details of your personal experience of the value of homeopathy. You can also ask them to table a Parliamentary Question. See our list of suggested questions.
2. Write to the Primary Care Trust’s Chief Executive.
If funding has been cut where you live, it will be because of a decision made by the body that runs health services in the area – the Primary Care Trust (PCT). Let your PCT know that you are unhappy about it – see our sample letter to PCTs. Give details of how homeopathy has helped you. Include a copy of the Faculty of Homeopathy’s evidence summary. Send a copy of your letter to your Local Involvement Network.
3. Successful homeopathic treatment? Tell your PCT about it.
Let your PCT know that money spent on homeopathy is worth it and that your treatment was effective, especially in comparison with conventional medicine. Send a copy of your letter to your Local Involvement Network.
4. Tell the media about how NHS homeopathy helped you.
Contact John Burry, Communications Manager on 01582 408682 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your success story can help us to achieve more positive media coverage of homeopathy in the NHS.
5. Pledge support to your local homeopathic hospital.
Find details of your nearest NHS homeopathic service on our contacts for campaigners page.
6. Make a donation to the BHA’s campaign fund.
Support our work and help us make sure that patients can have access to homeopathy in the NHS.
