Since 2004, Burton-upon-Trent's NHS Hospital Breast Care Unit has run a homeopathy service providing an alternative therapy for symptoms affecting women during and after treatment of their primary disease. The majority suffer from menopause-type symptoms arising from breast cancer treatment. Such symptoms can be bad enough to affect long-term compliance with drug regimes. Patients receive a course of treatment from a qualified homeopath, consisting of a series of patient-centred consultations plus individualised homeopathic medicines. The present study aimed to evaluate the benefit gained by women attending the homeopathic service between April 2005 and March 2007.
