MPs want complementary, traditional and natural medicine to rescue NHS from financial crisis
Changing health needs requires different approach, says new report
In 70 years of the NHS patients’ health needs have changed. Growing numbers of people suffering from long-term illnesses pose significant threats to the future sustainability of the NHS, a new report released by the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare warns.
MPs urge the NHS to embrace complementary, traditional and natural medicine to ease the mounting burden on service provision.
The report says that the rising costs to the health system require a whole person approach to health delivery which focuses on prevention and tackles the root cause of illness.
