Remodelling Medicine is the culmination of Dr Jeremy Swayne’s experience as a general practitioner and homeopathic physician over forty years of clinical practice, and more recently as a Church of England priest. He first explored the themes that have emerged in this book in 1976, when they were already beginning to arouse concern amongst medical practitioners and commentators, in a series of articles whose general purpose is reflected in the title of one of them, Medicine and healing – a broken marriage? (New Society 2nd September 1976; 491-2).
Over the years he has sought to deepen his understanding of the issues by providing time, both in general practice and private practice, to give attention to clinical detail, for the use of psychological skills, and for hearing ‘the story of sickness’. He has experience as a parish priest and in the Christian Healing Ministry, and a broad interest in the concept of healing and the relationship between science and religion. His recreations include principally his family and friends, music, laughter, and walking through the English countryside. His eccentricities have included from time to time Morris Dancing and other comic antics.
