Faculty of Homoeopathy UK Membership benefits

Founded in 1844 and incorporated by Parliament in 1950 the Faculty of Homeopathy supports registered medical professionals with their homeopathic practice. We are the only homeopathic organisation to be recognised by professional bodies such as the General Medical Council (GMC) and we have nine course providers, including four overseas.

The Faculty was incorporated by an Act of Parliament in 1950. The Act recognises the Faculty’s role in regulating the education, training and practice of homeopathy by the medical profession. Amendments to the Byelaws and Regulations over the years have extended the Faculty’s role to include other statutorily registered healthcare professionals.

We wanted to reach out to you, as we are looking to grow our homeopathic community in India. We have a large network of homeopaths we work and collaborate with all over the world, and would like to invite you and your organization to join our extensive homeopathic family. Not only would you benefit from the membership, we would love to be able to help grow your practice and work together.

1. Representation

The Faculty of Homeopathy, incorporated by an Act of Parliament in 1950, is composed of dentists, doctors, nurses, midwives, osteopaths, pharmacists, podiatrists and veterinary surgeons who integrate homeopathy into their practice. The Faculty represents the interests of these members and offers professional support.  This includes national and international representation through meetings, consultations and media appearances and developing dialogue with governing, educational, registration and funding bodies.  The Faculty has developed tools and resources to support members in a wide variety of ways including advice on setting up in private practice, help in understanding CPD and revalidation schemes, understanding the politics of homeopathy and what it means to members, as well as providing bespoke support for individual situations.
