Hospital of Homeopathy in Scotland: "No Scientific Evidence Base", Popular

here, excerpts from recent reporting about homeopathy in Scotland on the NHS:

001. at scotsman.com, we're told in "In Numbers: Scotland’s Only Homeopathic Hospital" (2015-10-23):

"[by way of Chris McCall]  The Centre for Integrative Care, based at Glasgow’s Gartnavel Hospital [...] Scotland’s only homeopathic hospital [...] remains a popular destination for patients despite three NHS health boards deciding to end referrals to it in recent years [...] the British Medical Association (BMA) believes it should receive no further NHS funding [...] Dr Harpreet Kohli, the [...] NHS Lanarkshire [...] board’s director of public health [...] said there was 'insufficient evidence' that homeopathic remedies were beneficial to patients’ health following a four year review [...] medical scientists believe the supposed benefits of alternative therapies are no better than placebos [...]";

so, homeopathy's decline continues.  You might now know this, though, if you were to use North American naturopathy organizations as your sole source of information.  I don't recommend that, because they falsely claim homeopathy is a "clinical science."
