ब्रिटेन में होम्योपैथी का विरोध – ब्रिटिश सरकार ने एन एच एस पर होम्योपैथी के अधिकार का बचाव किया (Government defends right to homeopathy on the NHS)

image ब्रिटिश सरकार ने दृढ़ता से एन एच एस पर होम्योपैथी के वित्तपोषण के लिए सांसदों और ब्रिटिश संसद की विज्ञान और तकनीकी समिति की रिपोर्ट  द्वारा मांगों को अस्वीकार कर दिया गया है और कहा  यह मरीज की  पसंद और  निर्णय पर निर्भर है कि वह कौन सी पद्दति को अपनाये ।

‘होम्योपैथी का  यूरोप में एक लंबा इतिहास  है और यूरोपीय संघ में भी होम्योपैथी  एक मान्यता प्राप्त है और काफ़ी यूरोपियन जनता तमाम विरोधों के बीच इसको पसंद करती रही है । जटिल केसों मे अकसर ऐलोपैथिक चिकित्सक होम्योपैथिक अस्पतालों मे केसों को रिफ़र करते देखे जाते है । समझा जाता है कि ब्रिटेन में सरकार होम्योपैथी पर हर साल लगभग 40 लाख पाउंड ख़र्च करती है । ब्रिटेन में लंदन, ब्रिस्टल, लिवरपूल और ग्लास्गो में होम्योपैथिक अस्पताल हैं । हाँलाकि ब्रिटिश संसद की विज्ञान और तकनीकी समिति की रिपोर्ट में ये स्वीकार किया गया कि आम लोगों में होम्योपैथी लोकप्रिय है और सर्वेक्षणों से पता लगता है कि इसका इस्तेमाल करनेवाले ७० प्रतिशत लोग इससे संतुष्ट भी हैं ।

‘सरकार का मानना है कि उपभोक्ताओं को जो होम्योपैथिक दवाओं का उपयोग करते हैं , उसके उद्देश्य के बारे में सूचित किया जाना चाहिए लेता है और  होम्योपैथिक दवा निर्माताओं को  गुणवत्ता और सुरक्षा के मानकों को बनाए रखना होगा । ’

Government defends right to homeopathy on the NHS

With thanks to Ian Quinn at Pulse Today 26.7.10

image The Government has strongly rejected demands by MPs for the funding of homeopathy on the NHS to be withdrawn, claiming it would fly in the face of patient choice and local decision-making.

In its response to a report from the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee, which issued a damning verdict on the practice and called for GPs to be barred from referring patients under the NHS, the Department of Heath said it would not be stepping in – despite MPs’ concerns over the lack of evidence and regulation of homeopathic treatments.

MPs had called not only for doctors to be barred from referring patients to homeopathic hospitals or homeopaths, but for the MHRA to intervene and to apply the same standards of regulation as for medicines, which they said would remove any medical claim supporters of homeopathy had.

But in its response today the DH said: ‘It is not appropriate for the Department of Health to remove the right of PCTs to make these decisions on a case-by-case basis.’

‘Capital investment decisions in the NHS are planned and decided at local level. The commissioning plans of local PCTs set out the type of services that need to be provided and therefore drive decisions about the nature of new facilities needed, or the need to maintain, update or replace existing facilities.’

The committee had also called for an investigation into the cost of homeopathy to the NHS and for new research into the evidence-base for homeopathy, but this too was rejected.

MPs had wanted regulators to ‘remove any medical claim and any implied endorsement of efficacy by the MHRA’ by ensuring the same evidence of efficacy used to assess conventional medicines was used, but the Government said this would potentially deal a fatal blow to the homeopathy market and limit consumer choice.

‘Homeopathy has a long tradition in Europe and is a recognised and widely used system of medicine across the EU,’ it said.

‘The Government takes the view that consumers who choose to use homeopathic medicines should be fully informed about their purpose and assured that standards of quality and safety are maintained. If homeopathic medicines were not subject to any kind of regulatory control consumers would not have access to such information or assurances.’

‘Conversely, if regulation was applied to homeopathic medicines as understood in the context of conventional pharmaceutical medicines, these products would have to be withdrawn from the market as medicines. This would constrain consumer choice and, more importantly, risk the introduction of unregulated, poor quality and potentially unsafe products on the market to satisfy consumer demand.’

Brian Kaplan – London | 26 Jul 10

This is truly marvellous news – simply the most heartening thing I’ve read in PULSE for years.

The government’s decision is a victory for liberty and democracy in this country and a slap in the face for those who would seek to thwart the rights of GPs to send patients to fully qualified doctors on the NHS who use homeopathic medicine.
