What We Do
At the NHS Centre for Integrative Care in Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital this is what we do…..
The NHS Centre for Integrative Care provides a range of services for patients with Long Term Conditions. At the first consultation patients receive an integrative, holistic assessment which has three goals. 1. A comprehensive, biopsychosocial understanding of the person and their illness; 2. An orientation of care towards supporting vitality and resilience achieved through individual empowerment and skills required to maximise self-healing and self-management; 3. The creation of an individualised therapeutic plan. Therapeutic plans can involve a number of elements delivered one-to-one or in groups, in ambulatory outpatient, day case, or inpatient environments, as appropriate.
Care is delivered by multidisciplinary teams of generalist medical doctors, nurses and Associated Healthcare Professionals.
Interventions include patient education programmes, relaxation, meditation and cognitive behavioural classes, Tai Chi, Yoga, massage, Art Therapy, Counselling, Acupuncture and Homeopathy. All interventions are drug-free and intended to improve well-being and reduce the long term need for medication and surgery.
The Centre is particularly able to help patients with “Medically Unexplained Symptoms”, multiple co-morbidities and those who have exhausted other possible solutions to their problems.
