To the Editor.— The Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital NHS Trust (RLHH), to our knowledge the only independent, public-sector hospital dedicated to complementary medicine (CM) in Europe, is committed to the evidence-based practice of CM.1 The RLHH operates within the National Health Service in a system in which health authorities, led by a director of public health (DPH) and, increasingly, by primary care groups responsible for smaller populations, make health care purchasing decisions and negotiate service contracts with secondary health care institutions.
