British doctors call for homeopathy ban

(The Telegraph): Hundreds of doctors will this week call for a ban on NHS funding for homeopathic treatments. Delegates to the British Medical Association’s conference are expected to support seven motions opposing the use of public money to pay for remedies which they claim have ‘no place in the modern health service.’ They are also calling for junior doctors to be exempt from being placed in homoeopathic hospitals, claiming it goes against the principles of evidence-based medicine. The conference will also hear calls for homoeopathic remedies to be banned from chemists unless they areclearly labelled as placebos rather than medicines.
