The Nursing Homes Registration Act of 1929, passed...


The Nursing Homes Registration Act of 1929, passed by the British Parliament, states that all nursing homes must be under the supervision of a qualified medical practitioner responsible to the Ministry of Health. However, a clause of this Act exempts Christian Science nursing homes from medical supervision on the condition that they be called Christian Science Houses, and that these houses comply with the requirements of a committee appointed by The Christian Science Board of Directors. The Ministry of Health gives exemption on the advice of this committee.

The majority of Christian Scientists have become interested in this religion after being treated by physicians or surgeons. They have forsaken material methods of healing because they are convinced that Christian Science Mind-healing is a better way. It is also an interesting fact that many reputable physicians have discarded their medical practice for that of Christian Science.
