    Listening to your survey on homeopathy funding, you mention almost (but only almost) accepting using it as plecebo treatment for chemo side-effects. In many ways, I can see the same arguments (in both directions) for the one that is possibly spending money on it at hospisess. If it helps a dying person be more comfortable, that is good, but as you said before, it is still justifying it’s use.

    Shame on you Darlo and Co. Durham! Atleast my new home of Doncaster isnt funding it.
