S5W-18308: Daniel Johnson (Edinburgh Southern)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 22 August 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether there are any NHS training posts that include placements in homeopathy.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 4 September 2018

None of the GMC approved medical training programmes require placements in homeopathy, and there are currently no training rotations in any medical placements which include homeopathy attachments.

There are no homeopathy nurses or allied health professions (AHP’s). Homeopathy is an entirely different training and not directly related to any AHP or Nursing; it is not a skill which would be registered or annotated on the Health and Care Professions Council/Nursing and Midwifery Council (HCPC/ NWC) register.
