Clinicians and managers from NHS trusts around the UK were the featured guests at the launch of New Statesman magazine’s Spotlight policy report on healthcare, which included a CNHC article on page 9.
CNHC Chair Michael Watson welcomed guests and contributors to last month’s event, which featured comments by Norman Lamb MP, the former health minister and now chairman of the Commons Science and Technology Select Committee, and Lisa Cameron MP, the Scottish National Party’s spokeswoman in Westminster on mental health.
The event was great opportunity for guests from NHS trusts and charities who use CNHC-registered practitioners to meet and share experiences of how complementary therapies are integrated with mainstream medicine for a wide range of patients.

The Spotlight supplement focuses on the future of the NHS – particularly the debate over what services should be part of the modern health service – and includes articles by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Labour’s shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth.
CNHC’s Chief Executive Margaret Coats contributed a piece on the benefits that complementary therapies could provide to NHS patients and health professionals, especially in a time of stretched resources.
