Touch Life With Beauty
By Alan Howell
Dear customers, patients and colleagues,
I am writing on behalf of all at Helios to ask for your help.
A review of the Medicines Act 1968 is currently taking place. Section 10 of this Act concerns licensing exemptions for pharmacists, and covers our freedom to supply a large number of different homoeopathic remedies. This section has not been updated despite a public consultation last January, to which the entire homoeopathic community submitted their concerns and suggestions.
The vast majority of the 3500 remedies available from homoeopathic pharmacies are
unlicensed. The 60 or so remedies which are licensed are those retailed in health
stores and community pharmacies and include Helios' licensed remedies. Section 10
(4a) states that a pharmacy can supply an unlicensed remedy to you directly but you
have to be physically present in the pharmacy. For the last 44 years and beyond,
the specialist pharmacies have provided homoeopathic medicines, to all corners of
the country, by phone, post, fax and more recently e-
Time is short but there is an opportunity now to highlight this issue and effect
a change by writing to your MP. Below is a letter created by the homoeopathic organisations
which is being circulated. It gives details of how you can help. We would be grateful
if you could take the time to let your MP know the impact that the enforcement of
this law would have on your choice of healthcare and lifestyle if access to your
remedies were severely restricted. Don't forget to include your home address and
postcode on all correspondence.
Thank you very much.
This campaign also has a global petition at Avaaz:
Finally if you are a Facebook user, liking the 'Homeopathy worked for me' page will
help to show the depth of homoeopathic support.
With all good wishes.

Your access to homeopathic medicines is under threat
The Medicines Act is being simplified, which is a good thing because much duplication is being removed. However, as a result there are some key elements which could adversely affect your access to homeopathic medicines if the proposals go into force.
What will happen to my access to homeopathic medicines?
If the current proposals by the MHRA are endorsed by government the following would occur:
What you can do to stop this from happening!
Write to your MP and tell him or her -
We are not asking to move mountains. All that needs to be done is a small change to Section 10 of the proposed new Medicines Act to allow greater freedom to dispense remedies to practitioners and could also overcome the face-
