Homeopathy is not for me

It is interesting that a model has been proposed for GPs to be the gatekeepers for alternative therapies on the NHS ('Homeopathy and acupuncture backed for NHS funding').

When I was asked for my first referral to a homeopathic hospital, I discussed it with my senior partner. I wanted to know whether to redirect the referral to another partner, as for termination referrals. I did not feel comfortable making a referral for something I felt was little more than a placebo.
