The first ever Acupuncture Awareness Week launches on Monday 27 February 2012 and will attempt to dispel the many myths still surrounding acupuncture.
Recent research has revealed that over 21 per cent of the British public think acupuncture needles are as large as the needles used for regular injections. Not true! But it just goes to show that in spite of Chinese medicine’s ever increasing popularity, there are still a whole host of common misconceptions surrounding this ancient form of treatment.

A meeting is to be held of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare on acupuncture on 1st November 2011, 6-8pm. The event will showcase new research into acupuncture, its cost-effectiveness and the opportunities it provides for patient choice within the NHS. The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Integrated healthcare aims to raise in Parliament the profile of integrated healthcare, to monitor new initiatives, and to work to ensure a better deal for people who use such services. Its commitment is to look into issues of interest and importance to people who use such services, healthcare professionals and the NHS. The issues it investigates are wide ranging: from access to services to the approach by the advertising standards authority to professionals who work in the field. Attendees at meetings include MPs and Peers, healthcare professionals, user representatives, and representatives from voluntary organisations. The APPG is lead by David Tredinnick, MP, independent of any interests of people who attend the group.
You can contact your MP to ask them to attend this meeting using this service: www.writetothem.com. Members will be informed after the event of which MPs attended.
