Our Chair of Trustees, Dr Ross Bryson, has written a small book explaining the principles of Whole Person Care called Honouring Personhood in Patients.
This book is in part a description of how some health professionals working in the National Health Service in Britain have sought to ensure that the uniqueness of each individual patient is not lost in the drive to deliver scientific medical care to a wide range of people in a resource-limited context.
Honouring Personhood in Patients can be bought as a booklet or a pdf by following this link, where you can also find out more about it and read the preface online.
The Trust is proud to support ‘Hearing the heart of God in healthcare: a doctors’ weekend away for conversations’ which will take place at Hothorpe Hall, March 7th -8th 2020. Find out more by clicking here.

The Trust has also supported the work done by the Association of Chaplains in General Practice in developing a professional accreditation for those working as chaplains in General Practice. This has been piloted in the Midlands and was launched at a conference on January 10th 2019:
