Complementary therapies can improve quality of life but there is little evidence they reduce NHS costs, new research concludes…Dr Lesley Wye, lead author and research fellow in primary health at the University of Bristol, said: 'The health status data seems to suggest that people using these services are feeling better, that they notice some sort of a difference. But in terms of NHS cost it was all over the place. Some of them showed the cost went up, some went down and some it stayed the same,' she said. The study was published this month in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine journal. Report by Nigel Praities, Pulse (30th March 2009) [See the link immediately below.]
