Questions
Q1. Is the draft Information Paper presented and written in a manner that is easy to understand?: 

No. This paper is full of 'medical  jargon'.

Q2. Does the draft Information Paper clearly outline how the evidence was reviewed and interpreted by the Homeopathy Working Committee?: 

 Is there ANYONE on the Homeopathic Working Committee who has the experience and knowledge of  International Standard Classical Homeopathy? A  Homeopathic  expert? The whole process comes from completely blind acceptance  of Modern Medicine built on faulty trials by people who  fail to comprehend the process of understanding and treating the patient as a whole rather than his or her symptoms.

 Where is the  freedom and autonomy of the individual to choose how to live in this modern chaos of  'double  blind' trials, side effects and  long term chronic diseases which are  constantly being  reviewed  with altered  treatments? 

 As  a  Registered Homeopath from UK, I am aware  of the huge media attack and the ensuing reduction in the numbers 'allowed' to request Homeopathy through the NHS. Having worked in hospitals for years as a nurse and midwife since 1962, I have been inspired  by Homeopathy and  its successes  since I  discovered it in 1982. 

 I challenge the right of those who know little of the successes of Homeopathic Healing to dismiss it so clumsily. As a lifelong student, I have been to many Homeopathic  seminars Internationally with  world class teachers over the past 30+ years.

 What are  we up against? Ignorance, bias and  pressure  from Pharmaceutical giants.

Q3. Is there additional evidence on the effectiveness of homeopathy for the treatment of clinical conditions in humans that needs to be considered? To be considered in public consultation any additional evidence must:: 

  There have been  so many   studies on successful Homeopathic trials. BUT they do not   subscribe to  your language!. We have our own!

Homeopathy treats people as individuals, not as symptoms. We do not DO double blind trials!
