MHRA Medicines Act and Homeopathy

Posted by

It seems as though the MHRA have decided to simplify the medicines act which has the potential to adversely affect your access to homoeopathic medicines within the UK. If the current proposals of the MHRA are fully endorsed by the government the following would occur:

1. You would no longer be able to get homoepathic medicines by telephone or online.
2. Homoeopaths would no longer be able to dispense or prescribe medicines to you.
3. You would have to get your homoeopathic medicines personally from a handful of licenced homeopathic pharmacies in Britain.

You can stop this from happening by contacting your local MP and expressing your disapproval. This will be particularly effective if your MP sits on the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments or is involved with Health or Pharmacy.

You can contact your MP by using the following link: http://findyourmp.parliament.uk/
You can find out who sits on the committee by using this link: http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/joint-select/statutory-instruments/membership/

There is also a petition over at avaaz.org which you can sign to show your support of alternative health care: http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/Your_Access_to_Homoeopathy_is_Under_Threat/?eNXFaab
