Consumer care said on 14 February 2013

Homeopathy is not medicine. It is wholly unacceptable to present Homeopathy as a credible alternative to evidence-based medicine, when there is ample evidence that clearly shows that Homeopathy at its best only acts as a placebo; more commonly, it does not work and delays proper medical treatment. It is outrageous that NHS Choices does not present clinical evidence on this widely dis-credited theory in a clear, honest and balanced way. Hiding the fact that Homeopathy does not work is clearly misleading, dishonest even. Evidence-based Medicine must take priority if we are to genuinely give patients fact-based choice.
