Homoeopathy can contribute to the Scottish Government’s integrative approach to patient care. We recognise that complementary or alternative therapies, including homoeopathy, may offer relief to some people suffering from a wide variety of conditions. Insights from the individualised homoeopathic approach have contributed to the work of the Centre for Integrative Care in Glasgow, which has also learned from the earlier work of the Glasgow Homoeopathic Hospital. The emergence of integrative principles has in turn helped contribute to the current emphasis in our quality strategy on person centred care, and on enabling partnerships with patients through empathetic consultations.
