Right now, homeopathic remedies are freely available and can be purchased from stores and prescribed by homeopaths. This is a situation that has been protected under PLR (product license of right), created in the Medicines Act 1968.
However, homeopathy has been the target of medical 'bully boys' for years, and it seems the health regulators are about to cave in. Last July, a House of Commons select committee agreed to review the Act, and especially homeopathy's PLR status.
If PLR protection is withdrawn, only homeopathic remedies for the mildest conditions will still be available in the stores, and only doctors will prescribe remedies.
