NHS Cancer Drugs refused – NHS Homeopathy gets a Yes !?!**

Julia Black on behalf of the Kidney Cancer Suport Network, put up a Number 10 Downing Street Petition about the N I C E refusal to fund  cancer drugs: it was cut off in it’s prime when the new Coalition Government stopped all petitions and signing  while they thought about it !! But in the 6 weeks it was up on the site  we got  nearly 2000 signatures, which was pretty good in 6 weeks….anyway we have  just had the answer to Julia’s petition , you can read the response to that here…..
 
 
 
While I was looking at the site to see if the Coalition Gov. are going to continue to  “allow” it’s citizens to petition their Government on issues they feel strongly about, I noticed that a Dr was asking the DOH to force N I C E to appraise Homeopathy, presumably  to find out whether it is cost effective  to use millions of pounds of NHS money on Homeopathy  while they  refuse to fund clinically effective cancer drugs… the Government answer is here… I find this just incomprehensible – they should appraise the  clinical evidence    but to refuse to do that even , well honestly it makes you weep …..
 
 
 
Stay warm……
