Time to reclaim ‘holistic’ care

Comment

Dr McCartney said, "HRH is right when he says that we should do more to ‘enhance the length of contact and continuity’ between doctors and patients" ... And the Prince is right about tomatoes too. Science has spoken: a very long empathetic consultation with a tomato plant will produce bigger, brighter, happier tomatoes, and more of them. Sadly, there are doctors who doggedly refuse to engage with the evidence. http://www.bmj.com/rapid-response/2011/11/03/retalking-animals-trick-or-talking-treatment
