National Board of Health and Welfare decides

O.K. for doctor to offer healing

Published tisdag 25 oktober 2011 kl 11.21

After a 17-month investigation, the National Board of Health and Welfare says a doctor can perform healing, reports Swedish Radio News.

Jan Oleby, a doctor in Vimmerby in the southern part of Sweden, was reported to police for giving healing as a part of his work. After the police report, Oleby stopped practicing out of fear of losing his license. But the National Board of Health and Welfare now says he did not do anything wrong.

Oleby maintained that he followed EU rules and that Sweden was an exception in the EU for not allowing healing as one aspect of healthcare.

The National Board of Health and Welfare says however that is was inappropriate that Oleby advertised that he was a licensed doctor. This, they say, could spread the idea that the effectiveness of the healing treatments he was performing was based on evidence.
