R (on the application of British Homeopathic Association) v National Health Service Commissioning Board

National Health Service – Pharmaceutical services. The defendant National Health Service Commissioning Board's consultation on items which should not routinely be prescribed in primary care had not been unlawful, in relation to the proposals relating to homeopathy. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the claimant British Homeopathic Association's application for judicial review, further dismissed its challenge to the defendant's decision to implement the consultation proposals by issuing guidance recommending that GPs should not prescribe homeopathic treatments as a new treatment and be supported in de-prescribing homeopathic treatments.
