Last year I asked the question, Are There Any Homeopathic Hospitals in the UK? In short, the answer was, “It is a myth that there are homeopathic hospitals in the UK. What we have are the tiny, vestigial remnants of Victorian Quackery in a few small clinics.”
Not so long ago, the Faculty of Homeopathy was boasting of five NHS Homeopathic Hospitals. Since then Tunbridge Wells Homeopathic Hospital closed. The Royal London Homeopathic Hospital gave up pretending it was a homeopthic hospital last year and renamed itself the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine where it serves up a mish-mash of superstitious medicine. We learnt this week that Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital has closed its pharmacy that specialised in labeling bottles of sugar pills for customers. It also styles itself the Centre for Integrative Care in Glasgow, no doubt to avoid the poisonous name of ‘Homeopathic Hospital’. Bristol Homeopathic Hospital retains its name but is reduced to an annex building. Liverpool too was reduced to being part of the Old Swan Clinic in Liverpool.
But now no mention of Liverpool appears to exist.The Faculty of Homeopathy no longer lists it. The Old Swan Centre web site appears not to mention homeopathy. Indeed, it would appear that Bristol is the only clinic that still exists and dares to call itself a NHS Homeopathic Hospital.
So what happened to Liverpool. It would be good to mark its demise. But does anyone know what happened? Any info gratefully received.
