Campaigners are thrilled after their campaign to reverse a decision by NHS bosses to no longer prescribe homeopathy on the NHS.

After winning the right to a judicial review the British Homeopathic Association is thrilled to announce that the NHS will be increasing the amount they are spending on homeopathic remedies by a whopping 0.0000001%.

“This a dream come true for homeopaths all over the UK.” Dr Ray vin Loony Chief Executive of The British Homeopathic Assocation told the Rochdale Herald.

“The UK has stockpiled literally grams of homeopathic medicine and there were fears that this was going to go to waste.”

“We had hoped for a 0.00000001% increase in spending on homeopathy but to get 0.0000001% is incredible. It’s literally ten times what we’d hoped for in our wildest dreams.”

“With this massive budget we’ll be able to deliver the urgently needed statistically negligible microscopic quantities of homeopathic medicine that people urgently need.”

“We just hope that the NHS will come to its senses and reintroduce mercury ointments and leeches under the next budget.”

Steve Smith Chief Executive of the NHS said: “Honestly, it just wasn’t worth the hassle, has anybody got any St John’s Wort.”
