This chapter compares the marginal, but intersecting, groups of health support workers and practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine in the UK, with particular reference to changing national policy and workforce dynamics. It considers the background to each of these areas, as well as recent policies impacting upon them in more detail alongside the mainstream political, social and economic drivers of reform. This enables a number of comparisons to be drawn. In both cases the associated workforce dynamics have impacted on the healthcare division of labour, with differential moves towards professionalisation, which bring potential regulatory benefits as well as costs for the health workers concerned and the wider public.

Keywords:   alternative medicine, UK, workforce dynamics, health support workers, division of labour
