Acupuncture For NHS

Home / Acupuncture For NHS

How can acupuncture help?

Acupuncture is a safe and effective form of treatment which is part of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). TCM can diagnose and treat both physical and non-physical symptoms and conditions. TCM does not see physical and non-physical as being separate, but as interdependent and inextricably interlinked.

This means that symptoms arising from emotional distress and overload are understood and can be treated equally well to those arising from overwork, time pressure and physical exhaustion.

Who is eligible?

NHS frontline staff with direct patient contact:

  • Paramedics
  • A&E and hospital and hot hub clinicians
  • GP’s practice clinicians
  • Community outreach teams members.

In accessing the service, priority will be given to staff working with possible or confirmed Covid-19 patients.

Is it free?

There is no charge for the appointments for NHS frontline clinical staff. Those who are able to, are encouraged to donate towards the project, but there is no obligation.

We are looking for funding to keep the service sustainable, and entirely free at the point of use. If you think you could help, either by donating, or you have a good fundraising idea, get in touch at

Mobile Clinics

A mobile clinic is when the practitioner comes to your hospital ward or GP’s practice, and provides a series of treatments in house for your staff.

These clinics work the best with either two or more clinical rooms, or with a larger space to use as a multi bed treatment room, not dissimilar to a standard hospital ward.

Feedback from NHS staff from previous mobile clinics has been overwhelmingly  positive and appreciative.
