To Medicine,

What could medicine look and feel like if we restored love, caring and true compassion to the practice of our work?

Medicine is a time-honoured and noble art, as well as a great science, yet over the years, it has increasingly lost its way. We have made the focus increasingly on the evidence, and getting results, at the expense of people, those providing the service and those we are here to serve. What would medicine be like if we brought the care back into medical care?

For medicine to be all that it can be, it is important that we consider what love, caring and compassion in full measure could bring to our lives and those of our patients.

We invite you to join us on this exploration of true healing.
