patient experience

Paul Goggins MP, Health Minister for Northern Ireland, announced a new fund to pilot the integration of complementary medicine into the NHS. He said that these therapies should be made available to all people, not just people who can afford to pay privately--sentiments that we share. Get Well UK is operating the pilot project in 2007-2008. If it is successful, with patients' health improving and money being saved, then the service will be rolled out across all of Northern Ireland.

Broadcast journalist Boni Sones, spoke to four patients, a GP who has referred her patients and their practitioners to find out how the Get Well UK programme was improving their health. You can listen to this 26 minute audio documentary in full by clicking on this link.
