PATIENTS’ RIGHTS TO COMPLEMENTARY & ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES ON THE NHS

At the last meeting of the Cross-party Group on Chronic Pain discussed support for chronic pain patients’ equal rights to access through the NHS, if they wish, at least the Complementary and Alternative Therapies (CAM) recommended by the SIGN guideline on chronic pain management and related findings in the GRIPS Reports. This proposal was unanimously supported and those issues will be discussed as the first item at our next meeting on Tuesday, 24th Feb 2015

Are chronic pain patients who want CAM treatments getting fair access on the NHS?  The CPG agreed to members’ requests to discuss this following claims that access was not equal, despite some CAM treatments being approved by the SIGN guidelines on Chronic Pain.
