Lord Aaron Kenneth Ward-Atherton
It is with great sadness that I am informing you that Ken Atherton has sadly passed away. Ken had always been an active member of the academy, he was our chair for a numbers years and has been our political advisor for the last 15 years or so. He was instrumental in forming the British Acupuncture Federation and was their facilitator. He helped to set up the recent pilot at the Royal Liverpool Hospital and was talking about the next step forward only a few weeks ago at the agm. He was the patron of a number of organisations, including the integrated therapies unit at the Christie Hospital and Alkaptonuria Society at the department of Anatomy at the Faculty of Medicine Liverpool at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals. Ken had excellent links in the world of politics and complementary therapies. He was a homeopath and was held in high esteem by fellow homeopaths. He will be very sadly missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.
