Endorsements for The NHS Healer- Onwards and Upwards

Dr Rosy Daniel, Medical Director Health Creation Coaching and Consultancy

“Angie Buxton-King is one of the most dedicated leaders and innovative pathfinders within the holistic healthcare movement. She transformed the tragic loss of her son Sam into the most exceptional work to bring healing, love and tender care to people at their very most vulnerable moments within the heart of mainstream oncology care. She has found her way through the resistance, scepticism and cost barriers to get this crucial care through to the people that need it and created new pathways to establish gold standard integrative healthcare within Britain’s National Health Service. This is an extraordinary achievement and I salute Angie for the bravery, brilliance and determination you have showed in your exceptionally important and beautiful work. This book will show all of us on this pioneering path how to achieve our vision and follow in Angie’s awesome footsteps to make holistic care of body, mind and spirit the norm within medicine”.


Stephen Rowley Senior Divisional Nurse Clinical Haematology UCLH

“Even with today’s clinical advancements cancer remains a debilitating experience. The combined damage from disease and intensive treatment, on self, family and employment often has an overwhelming effect on an individual’s wellbeing. To think all this can be treated by chemotherapy and radiotherapy is simply daft! 


This was why in 1999 when I first saw Angie and then later her team provide healing to patients at University College London Hospitals, it was immediately obvious that patients benefited from having this additional support and that they very quickly considered it to be an essential part of their treatment. Not as curative treatment (although some additional hope is a powerful phenomenon) but simply to help cope with the profound experience and impact of cancer treatment. Some of the patient interactions were quite spectacular. But most impressive was the way something like healing was so quickly integrated into an acute NHS service. Seeing doctors ask for a healer to help support a patient through a medical procedure was not unusual and at the time represented a quiet but important evolution in cancer care.  


Over the subsequent decade, the supportive and clinical benefits that healing provides has provided the evidence and assurance for healing to be delivered alongside conventional treatments on a wider scale. The further expansion of well governed healing into 13 other centres ‎via the SBSHT is further tangible evidence of the role healing is playing in the integrated care of patients. 


Some will naturally question the evidence and funding of healing with charitable or NHS monies. But for perspective we can ask the same question of the far greater millions of pounds spent across the NHS, on say, Public Relations departments to name just one. All these things probably have value. But healing is a front line treatment involving human to human contact when a person with cancer most needs a helping hand. I know which ‘department’ I would prioritise. 


I applaud Angie's work and her non conditional dedication to others, and the work of healers and complementary therapists across the UK helping support cancer patients; in ways that probably only people who have had cancer can properly articulate. As health care professionals we need to target the individual as well as the disease. Being able to provide healing alongside conventional treatment is something that helps us to do that”. 


Dr William Bloom

"Firmly grounded in practical realities Angie Buxton-King provides us with an inspiring view of how spiritual healing can be integrated into hospitals. This is required reading for all healers, clinicians and hospital administrators who want to integrate valuable complementary therapies into mainstream practice. It is also an enjoyable read as it describes Angie’s own journey with this work. Recommended.”


Mathew Manning Healer

"How I wish there were more books like "The NHS Healer - Onwards and Upwards.' I've always passionately believed that healing should work alongside orthodox medicine and Angie Buxton-King has put enormous time and effort into creating that reality. This fascinating book tells of her journey to integrate healing practices into the NHS, and the results are extraordinary. As a result, healers are now working in numerous hospitals and hospices across Britain.

 "Angie's pioneering work has helped to ensure that healing is not dismissed as an unproven therapy on the fringes of 'alternative medicine', but rather has quantifiable benefits that can touch the lives and help many patients at a dark and difficult time when facing serious illness.

"The results should be integrated as a blueprint for all who want to develop their own healing abilities."

 “I am immensely grateful to Angie and her charity who has pioneered the introduction of healers into the NHS. Hopefully once their true benefits are appreciated, energy healing will be introduced in more specialities as it is in some hospitals in America.

I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Angie’s new book which hopefully will be as successful as her first one introducing the subject”.
