The Society for Science Based Healthcare formally complained to the council over some pharmarcies promoting homeopathic products as effective - which breaches its own code of ethics.

Andrew Bary, who is the chair of the Pharmacy Council and Mark Honeychurch is the founder of the Society for Science Based Healthcare, and the chair of Skeptics New Zealand Mark Honeychurch, talk to Kathryn Ryan.
