I had been receiving acupuncture for the last 4 to 5 years and it has helped me greatly to stay mobile which really did surprise me as i had absolutely no faith in it what so ever that is until i tried it. I am 73 years old and have worked all my life and paid contributions. Then the lady who did the acupuncture retired and they have not replaced her and i believe she had over 200 clients! I am now having to pay £40 a time to get acupuncture privately, and i even contacted my local MP who did in turn write to the NHS about this but again to no avail. How can this service just be withdrawn and not replaced when it was benefiting so many people.
