February 2016

Welcome to our regular monthly update on our projects and progress, designed to give our supporters an insight into some of the things we're working on and how you might be able to help. Please share it with anyone you think might be interested in hearing more about Good Thinking's work. 

Have your say on NHS Homeopathy funding in the Wirral

Last year, we challenged NHS Liverpool CCG over their decision to spend over £30,000 per year on homeopathic remedies. We are expecting the results of the consultation soon, but meanwhile some of the few remaining CCGs to still fund homeopathy are beginning to conduct their own consultations, with NHS Wirral CCG next to seek the opinions of the public on the funding of homeopathy.

You can share your thoughts with the CCG via their online survey, which is open to everyone, even if you are not a resident of the Wirral:

If you’d like to understand more about the consultation, the accompanying pages offer some insights into the issues surrounding homeopathy in the Wirral.

Please take 5 minutes to ensure the reputation of the NHS is not used to lend credibility to a system of alternative medicine that can offer no benefits to patients. Once you’ve taken the survey, be sure to share it with friends and colleagues – the more support NHS Wirral CCG gets for ending homeopathy funding, the better chance we have of helping them make this decision happen.

As a registered charity, we rely on your support to continue our work. You can support Good Thinking by making a small monthly donation, or a one-off donation.

If you've seen something you'd like us to investigate, or if you'd like our advice on an issue you're facing or an activist idea you're working on, 
please get in touch.
