HC Deb 13 November 2001 vol 374 c673W
21. Mr. Tredinnick

To ask the Secretary of State for Health which health authorities fund GP referrals for homeopathic treatment on the NHS; and what plans he has to improve equality of access for such treatment. [12126]

Ms Blears

There is no central record of national health service referrals for homeopathic treatment. Current NHS reforms will give primary care trusts full responsibility for providing services for local patients. This environment of local autonomy and innovation should have scope for complementary therapies that can prove their worth.
