    This is an excellent site delivering real inforamtion about real issues at grass roots level and the topics menu running down the left really highlights all the issues. I am very interested in Integrated health and would love to add more Health Knowledge to my CPD as i am recently trained as a holistic therapist. I too would like to hear of the development of courses and hope to getinvolved in integrated health policies in the future.
