Dr Somerville will tell board members there is “no evidence” that homeopathic remedies work

The board of NHS Highland will be asked to end support for homeopathic treatment at a meeting to be held later.

Director of public health Dr Margaret Somerville’s recommendation follows a BBC investigation last month.

Three homeopaths told the BBC they gave patients a homeopathic medicine designed to replace the MMR vaccine.

Inverness-based Katie Jarvis said she only offered “Homeopathic Prophylaxis” to patients who expressed an interest.
