Yes, most definitely
We advocate the integrated safe use of medicinal plants for our patients by working with other healthcare practitioners such as GPs, Nurse Practitioners, and specialists. It is very important that all healthcare providers responsible for your care are fully informed about the herbs and drugs you are taking, including over the counter products and food supplements. This is important in order to avoid possible herb/drug/supplement/food interactions. Your Medical Herbalist is aware of the difficulties involved and will provide information on request and with your permission will liaise with any of your other healthcare providers.

There are many situations in which medical herbalists work in multi-disciplinary health teams in co-operation with conventional practitioners, whilst remaining close to their roots in traditional medicine. We welcome and encourage the further integration of all medical professionals.
