Bma Annual Representative Meeting Motions On Homeopathy

EDM number 284 in 2010-12, proposed by David Tredinnick on 21/06/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Health services.

That this House expresses concern at motions 301, 301a, 301b, 301c, 301d, 301e and 301f at this year's British Medical Association's (BMA) Annual Representative Meeting, which calls for no further commissioning of, nor funding for, homeopathic remedies in the NHS; believes that the BMA has overstepped its remit by making such statements without proper consultation with its own membership that practice homeopathy and, more importantly, with the tens of thousands of patients who depend on homeopathy; thinks that an integrated NHS, which employs the best from the orthodox and complementary, and which empowers patients, could deliver better and more cost-effective outcomes at a time of financial prudence; and calls on the Government to maintain its policy of allowing decision-making on individual clinical interventions, including homeopathy, to remain in the hands of local NHS service providers and practitioners who are best placed to know their community's needs.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs, 3 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
