Legal Matters (Part 2)

In January 1999 the NFSH extensively revised its Code of Conduct (CoC) to include a much more comprehensive explanation as to the law relating to the giving of treatment to children under 18 years of age. This has been revised even further in the 2010 version of the CoC issued by the NFSH which has now adopted the working name of 'The Healing Trust'. As well as containing further information on working with children, the new CoC gives guidance on working with vulnerable adults. For further information on working with young people, reference should be made to section 5 of the NFSH (The Healing Trust) CoC. 2010. These guidlines are further complicated by additional clauses contained in The Children Act 1989. In particular, is the matter of a sick child being brought for healing by the person with parental responsibility for that child and who has not consulted a medical doctor. The Healer may unwittingly be put in the position of being complicit in law of a criminal offence if they do not warn the parent or guardian that they may be guilty of a criminal offence for not seeking medical treatment for their child.In situations where a Registered Healer becomes aware that such a child has not previously been referred for treatment to a medical doctor, then the healer is required by their code of conduct to obtain the signature from the parent or guardian to a statement that they have been warned that they are required by law to consult a doctor concerning the health of their child. Healing should not be given if such a declaration is not signed.In addition, the Registered Healer has a responsibility to notify the child’s doctor or the appropriate social services department, if they suspect the child is suffering from any form of harm, be it emotional or physical. The healer has the right to refuse healing to any child under 18 years where they are not satisfied that their parent or guardian is fully cooperating in trying to obtain medical treatment as defined in law for the wellbeing of their child. GIVING HEALING TO ANIMALSIt has already been established above that there are strict laws governing the giving of Spiritual Healing (and other complementary treatments) to children under 18 years of age. The law relating to the giving of similar treatments to animals is in fact, even stricter and enshrined in ‘The Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966’. This act prohibits anyone other than a registered veterinary surgeon from carrying out treatment on animals. This includes diagnosis of injuries and ailments including any associated diagnostic tests and treatment and advice based on that diagnosis. The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) does however, allow Contact (and Distant) Healing as being permitted under the terms of the above act. Such permission is only given to bona fide healers operating to a strict code of conduct.The Healer must establish that the owner of the animal has sought veterinary attention for the animal. Unless this assurance can be given, the Healer is not permitted by law to perform Spiritual Healing. The veterinary surgeon remains in charge of the case at all times and the healer must never countermand any treatment that the veterinary surgeon has prescribed.
