So in a thread about how we can't see what known homeopathy worshipper Prince Charles has been bugging politicians about you point out that parliament has authorised homeopathy in defiance of NICE guidance ...

Move along here, nothing to see ...

There is nothing to see if you don't want to see it.

What ought to be obvious is that Charles isn't the only believer in homeopathy. Politicians do stuff because they want to get re-elected not because they give a **** about what Charles thinks. If they authorised homeopathy it is because some of their constituents felt strongly about it.

Its part of government policy

NHS News again.


What was the Government’s response?

The Government has decided to continue to allow homeopathic hospitals and treatments to be received on the NHS, where local doctors recommend them.

It agrees that the efficacy of a treatment is important, but said there are many considerations when making policy decisions, and that patient choice is an important factor to consider.

Yes, I think I said that when it was noted that parliament voted to approve its continued use despite NICE believing it to be useless.

Which, of course, it is.

Yes, there is no way Prince Charles could be influencing anybody. Don't know he bothers with all the writing.

In homeopathic terms it's a diluted £20m.

He does have rather a lot of time on his hands.

Still perhaps you might like to try to link to an article that says that we only have homeopathy on the NHS because of Charles, that is what I objected to.

Prince Charles's opinions, how he expresses, how often and to whom and with what success, has just been surpressed.

Did you miss that part?

I treated it as what it is.

Do you imagine that there are other countries in the world which also have homeopathy on their NHS?
How is this possible if Prince Charles doesn't write any letters?

The Australian Association of Professional Homeopaths Inc says 47 health insurers, including Medibank Private and NIB, cover homeopathic consultations and medicines.

My God, health insurers in Oz actually pay for homeopathy, Charles must have been very busy.

Or alternatively other people think there is something in it.

I have no idea how things work for homeopathy in other countries. There may be some pressure amongst the delusional to get their insurers to pay for it, there may be commercial interest in selling empty pills to the desperate.

Indeed so it's not just "Charles wants it so that's why we have it" e.g. in New Zealand :-

In July, Wanganui Hosital announced plans to provide support for a range of natural therapy services, including Maori healing, Christian prayer, massage, reiki and meditation, with the health director involved stating that it would be New Zealand´s “first-ever multi-model, natural therapy hospital service”.

Homeopathic treatments are probably very cheap,compared to conventional Western medicine etc, which will certainly suit the health insurance companies. Mind you, the treatments ought to be cheap, given that they are water! :)

.

Perhaps if he did more stuff for himself instead of having someone to do it for him (like someone holding the bottle when he has ot provide a specimen) his idle hours could be filled.
