Homeopathy prescribing set to be blacklisted under NHS England plans

Comment

Easy, to reduce the size of state and taxpayer spending in general, and in healthcare, starting with anything non-medical, unproven, non-essential etc. The evidence for homeopathy is that its quackery. If the evidence for SSRIs is that poor, let the individual/free market decide if they want to spend on it. Also, there's no point trying to lump SSRIs and homeopathy together. There are guidelines for SSRIs, whilst currently, NICE doesn't recommend that homeopathy be used in the treatment of any health condition.
