This is an interesting story reported by the BBC. It’s RECOMMENDED READING, in my view. Check it out!

BBC News – Kenya’s traditional healers can help with mental health.

I know the BBC likes to be a bit radical, so I was surprised that it did not recommend African witch doctors to help rescue the UK’s NHS from deepening crisis and paralysis!

Let me ask a related open question:

Should the UK Government sponsor traditional healers in UK public healthcare?

Any thoughts?

Interesting, it’s a big, thumbs-up, for former UK Prime Minister and Chancellor, Gordon Brown but it’s very definitely a thumbs-down for George Osborne.

 

Any thoughts?
