I motsetning til i Norge har det lenge vært vanlig at britiske myndigheter gir støtte til homøopatisk behandling. Det later til at det blir mindre av dette i forbindelse med forsøk på å få mest mulig ut av helsepengene. Stephen Barrett rapporterer følgende:

The Board of West Kent Primary Care Trust (PCT) has decided to stop funding homeopathic consultations and treatments. The decision came after a public consultation which started in April. Before reaching its conclusion, the Board considered clinical effectiveness, population needs, value for money, impact on other services and public demand. In a news release, PCT’s medical director Dr James Thallon said:

We appreciate that some people report finding homeopathy beneficial, and they will be disappointed by this decision. But ultimately it is the clear duty of PCTs to make best use of public money by commissioning clinically cost-effective care. There is not enough evidence of clinical effectiveness for us to continue to commission homeopathy.” [1]

Måtte norske helsepolitikere (fortsette å) tenke likeledes.
