Why is a UK hospital offering dubious “energy therapies”? Atlanta, GA reporter and I have asked UK oversight agency
Last Monday, my Atlanta, GA blogging buddy Peter M. Heimlich and I co-signed and co-blogged a request for a review of dubious medical treatments being offered by a Liverpool hospital. We filed our request with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), “the independent regulator of health and social care in England.”

Today we filed a similar request with the CQC re: Derbyshire Community Health Services which is apparently offering “Neuro-Linguistic Programming” (NLP), “energy therapies,” and “Emotional Freedom Technique” (EFT), treatments discussed in the post Mental Help: Procedures to Avoid by retired psychiatrist Stephen Barrett MD, founder and proprietor of Quackwatch.com.
