Dr. Peter Fisher F.F.(hom)
 
     Dr. Peter Fisher is the Clinical Director and Director of Research at the Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital in London, UK. He has been Physician to Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II. He is the Chair of the World Health Organisation’s working group on homeopathy, whose report is due for publication soon, and Editor-in-Chief of Homeopathy, the only journal dedicated to homeopathy indexed in medline (www.sciencedirect.com/homp). He is also clinical lead of the national library for Health’s on-line complementary and alternative medicine specialist library, the official website of the British National Health Service for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (www.library.nhs.uk/cam).

     A fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of London, he is accredited as a specialist in both homeopathy and rheumatology, he has published many papers on research in homeopathy and other forms of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

    Peter Fisher’s interest in Complementary Medicine was triggered by a visit to China during the Cultural Revolution while still a medical student at Cambridge University, focusing on homeopathy while a junior doctor on call at The Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital.

    The Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital (RLHH) is a National Health Service hospital which provides a range of Complementary and Alternative Therapies (despite its title, not just homeopathy), as well as education and research. Part of University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, one of the UK’s leading academic medical centres, it is the largest public sector Complementary Medicine hospital in any industrialised country. The RLHH’s historic building at the corner of Great Ormond Street and Queen Square reopened in June 2005 following a comprehensive redevelopment at a cost of about €30m. Apart from providing a 21st century base for the provision of complementary medicine on the NHS, the RLHH has active research and education projects.
