HC Deb 09 January 2003 vol 397 c324W
Chris Grayling

To ask the Secretary of State for Health which complementary treatments and therapies are available through the NHS. [88362]

Ms Blears

A survey of primary care trusts, conducted by the University of Sheffield in 2001, found that acupuncture, homeopathy, medical herbalism and osteopathy or chiropractic were most widely used.
