This book investigates the scientific basis and efficacy of acupuncture and the quality of training and standards of competence in its practitioners. Patients are increasingly asking about CAM alternatives to orthodox medical practices as they fear the side-effects of ever more potent traditional drug therapy.

The book discusses the important issues of safety and the education and training of acupuncture specialists. In addition the book investigates GP's attitudes to acupunture and the extent to which they offer the treatment to their patients.
