Governing Body Paper 7 August 2018: Item 6.1

During 2017 and 2018, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire CCG reviewed NHS-funded homeopathy services as part of the Planned Care Control Centre programme within the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership.

This paper describes current homeopathy treatment for people in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, the reason why a review was undertaken, the options for change, feedback from public consultation and potential next steps. The paper is to allow Governing Body to review consultation feedback, evidence and a recommendation from the Commissioning Executive about next steps. After reviewing this paper, Governing Body is asked to make a decision about the extent to which local people will have access to NHS-funded homeopathy.
