Notes to editors
1. Over the last five years The King's Fund has provided £1 million to support the work of The Prince of Wales's Foundation for Integrated Health in establishing effective regulation for complementary practice. In December 2004, the Department of Health announced it was awarding a grant of £900,000 to The Prince of Wales's Foundation for Integrated Health for it to continue its work on the regulation of complementary healthcare. The three-year grant will begin in April 2005.
2. The King's Fund is an independent charitable foundation working for better health, especially in London. We carry out research, policy analysis and development activities, working on our own, in partnerships, and through grants. We are a major resource to people working in health, offering leadership and education courses; seminars and workshops; publications; information and library services; and conference and meeting facilities.
