Revision of NICE Guidelines concerning Complementary Therapy Services

We have been passed information to advise that the revision of NICE Guidelines for Improving Supportive and Palliative Care in Adults is underway and the scoping process has recommended that Complementary Therapy Services (CT) are removed from the guidelines. The rationale and implications for removing CT do not appear to have been given.


Many thanks to all those involved in the Meetup trials in London and Winchester recently. We all had a great time, and the energy and goodwill created was fabulous. Feedback was excellent, so a positive experience all round!

I will be writing a full report soon.

Many blessings,
Claire Lewis.
