Jean Galbraith died peacefully at home on Wednesday 19th March. A former Trustee of the National Federation of Spiritual Healers from 2004-2010 (now the Healing Trust) and Chair of Region 5, she led a full and interesting life. 
The Sam Buxton Sunflower Healing Trust notes "Our friend and great supporter Dr Jean Galbraith died peacefully at home on Wednesday 19th March. Jean was a doctor in General Practice for thirty-one years, and also in Infectious Diseases at St Albans hospital for seventeen years. In this time, she founded or chaired many organisations to support her community, and volunteered to help the homeless both as a healer and in other ways. Jean helped establish a cancer care support group and to set up a fund to bring Macmillan nurses to St Albans that eventually resulted in the creation of Grove House Hospice. She also chaired Child Health International, and the London branch of the Doctor-Healer Network.
"It was after the early death of her daughter Kirstie in 1986 that Jean encountered spiritual healing, on a visit to the Bristol Cancer Care Centre. Following two years of study and discovery she introduced two spiritual healers into her General Practice on a professional basis, as well as running meditation classes for her patients to reduce their stress symptoms. She brought together a team of healers to work with the homeless in St Albans and was a pioneering GP who helped the integration of healing into healthcare."
