Annual Report 2006-7

This has been a quiet year for the trust, with the Whole Person Clinic at the Barkantine Practice running down due to the departure of our counsellor and ill health on the part of Doctor Sheldon. Dr John Hardaker has stepped into the gap and has been seeing a small number of referrals from the GP practice. At the end of the year we decided to close down the clinic, The main future activity will be teaching and the writing up of our experience to inform other practitioners.

Our web site describes the basic work of the Trust and Clinic. The site also advertises the Hanbury Booklets and enables people to contact us via e-mail. We have also purchased the web domain www.wphtrust.org and will use this to store resources on whole person health for the medical profession.

Hanbury Booklets
We have been using the Hanbury series of booklets as a way of publishing longer articles or essays which build towards an understanding of whole-person health. A list of booklets published, and those in preparation is available from the Trust office.

Training programmes
Dr Sheldon has been involved in a number of teaching and training sessions both in the UK and abroad. These have mainly been to medical audiences, informing them of the importance of a whole-person approach, and then discussing possible ways in which medical practice may be altered to provide a more whole-person method of health care delivery.  Some on-going consultancy work has also been undertaken, so far mainly with GPs, to help them seek for ways in which whole-person principles may be applied in practice.

This new organisation has been developed by Dr Sheldon and others interested in the field of wholeness and healing. The main co-workers are Dr Michael Harper and Revd Dr Russ Parker. The organization intends working as an umbrella organisation for healing centers and Christian whole-person projects.

In the previous financial year we received a one-off gift of £11,500 being the closing balance of the Churches Council for Health and Healing which has now closed down. The Whole Person Health Trust has held these designated funds to be spent by WholeCare on projects relating to the advancement of whole person care. Conferences are planned, and research fellows already appointed to explore in depth some aspects of the whole person approach in health care.

Philippa Downs has continued to provide administrative backup for the Trust. We also designed and executed a web site on behalf of the organisation which can be found at www.emcpa.eu 

Future developments.
It is our intention to spend the coming year concentrating of developing and disseminating resources for health care professionals, through books and pamphlets, our web sites and conferences and training seminars. We also intend encouraging other professionals who are seeking to develop a whole person approach to health.

The directors present their report and accounts for the year ended 31st March 2007 and confirm that the accounts have been prepared in accordance with the charitable company’s governing instrument and relevant statutory requirements.

The company, which is limited by guarantee and therefore governed by its Memorandum and Articles of Association, is a registered charity.

Law applicable to charitable companies in England and Wales requires directors to prepare accounts for each financial year which give a true and fair view of the charitable company’s financial activities during the year and of its financial position at the end of the year.  In preparing accounts giving a true and fair view, the directors should follow best practice and:

  • select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently;
  • make judgements and estimates that are reasonable and prudent;
  • prepare accounts on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the charitable company will continue in operation.

The directors are responsible for keeping accounting records which disclose with reasonable accuracy the financial position of the charitable company and which enable them to ascertain the financial position of the charitable company and which enable them to ensure that the accounts comply with applicable law.  They are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the charitable company and hence taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.

The directors confirm that the charitable company can meet all its obligations on all its funds, if not the directors will contribute sufficient capital to achieve this.

The directors for this year were
Dr Michael G Sheldon,  Revd. Dr Nick Read,  Dr Stuart Bingham

The report of the directors’ has been prepared in accordance with the special provisions of Part VII of the Companies Act 1985 relating to small companies and was approved by the board on 15th November 2007 and signed on its  behalf.
