Finance: Money for alternative medicine social enterprise

Futurebuilders has awarded a development grant of more than £12,000 to a Nottingham social enterprise that provides complementary health services to patients with chronic conditions.

Impact Integrated Medicine Partnership is now working with local GPs and the Nottingham City Primary Care Trust to develop complementary services for more NHS patients.

The Futurebuilders grant will support Impact's business planning, marketing and capacity-building as it works to secure further public sector contracts.

"The Government is keen to encourage third sector healthcare providers to enter the NHS, and we are working hard with commissioners to introduce new types of treatment and more choice for patients," said Fiona Robertson, a director of Impact.

"There is a high demand for complementary health services within the NHS. Nearly 1,000 local people have signed a petition calling for acupuncture, chiropractic and homeopathy to be made available."
