1 Summary of conclusions

The NHS (and virtually every public healthcare system in the world) is in a crisis due to over-prescribing of medication, because the medical profession are still addicted to the out dated medical model from the materialist, reductionist, mechanist paradigm. Doctors think that they are being scientific, but the paradigm of neruroscience (neuroplasticity) has shifted to the bio psycho social model under holism, which recognises the mind/body (psycho/somatic) effect, and meditation as essential for healing and curing mental disorders, which underlie physical ones.

The leaders of the medical profession should implement the old adage ‘profession heal thyself’, but cannot because of their addiction to materialism and drugs. In England, under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, the health secretary delegated his power and funds (£70 bnpa) down to the councillors on the Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWB) and their executives called Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) of GPs who are now responsible for curing the medical profession and the NHS, on behalf of us patients and citizens who fund them with £110 bnpa.
