英国から消えゆくホメオパシー病院

British Homeopathic Association(英国ホメオパシー協会)によれば、英国NHSの資金に入っているホメオパシー病院は3つ:

  • Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine
  • Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital
  • Bristol Homeopathic Hospital
昨年春の時点のアーカイヴでは5つだったので、1年半で2つがNHSの補助対象ではなくなったことになる。

  • Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine
  • Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital
  • Bristol Homeopathic Hospital
  • Liverpool Department of Homeopathic Medicine
  • Tunbridge Wells Homeopathic Hospital

資金源を失ったLiverpool Department of Homeopathic Medicineは静かに消滅:
It would appear that, quietly and without fuss, the NHS Homeopathic Hospital in Liverpool has closed. It is difficult to know precisely what has happened. But there now appears to be no trace of its existence.

存在することになっているGlasgow Homeopathic Hospitalも実体を失っているもよう:
The ratchet on NHS homeopathy continues to turn. It would appear that the homeopathic pharmacy at the Glasgow Homeopathy Hospital has been closed. ... Scottish commissioners have been refusing to pay for patients to be referred to the homeopaths and the BMA has called for all health boards to stop funding. Certainly spelling eventual doom was the decision to stop paying for doctors to be trained in homeopathy at the hospital.

また、Tunbridge Wells Homeopathic Hospitalも2009年に資金源を失って閉鎖されている。
At a meeting of the West Kent PCT board, on 27 September 2007, it was decided to withdraw all funding for homeopathy from the end of this financial year. This means the end for the Tunbridge Wells Homeopathic Hospital.

2009 – The Tunbridge Wells Homeopathic Hospital was closed on 1.4.2009 following a vitriolic campaign against homeopathy.

また、Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicineは元は"Royal London Homeopathic Hospital"という名称だったが、看板を掛けかえている。

英国政府レベルではNHSによるホメオパシーに対する医療費補助は廃止されていないが、地方レベルでは補助打ち切られていて、順次、ホメオパシー病院は消滅しているもよう。
