The Faculty of Homeopathy, incorporated by an Act of Parliament in 1950, is composed of dentists, doctors, nurses, midwives, osteopaths, pharmacists, podiatrists and veterinary surgeons who integrate homeopathy into their practice. The Faculty represents the interests of these members and offers professional support. This includes national and international representation through meetings, consultations and media appearances and developing dialogue with governing, educational, registration and funding bodies. The Faculty has developed tools and resources to support members in a wide variety of ways including advice on setting up in private practice, help in understanding CPD and revalidation schemes, understanding the politics of the NHS and what it means to members, as well as providing bespoke support for individual situations.
