Complementary Medicine On NHS

Doctors attack 'bogus' therapies

I'm really not sure what I think about this. My experience of complimentry medicine is limited (never really had it - other than some arnica I was given for my knee, which didn't seem to do much really).

However, regardless of whether it works or not people should be entitled to undergo the treatments if they believe that is what they want. The issue is whether the taxpayer should fund it or not.

In some ways I can see that as long as their is a vague possibility that it works and it reassures people then NHS funding is a good thing as it then makes it available to all. The question is then what gives to allow for this

Anyway excuse for poll:
