Christian GP accused of performing exorcism

A medical tribunal has heard that a UK GP exorcised a seriously ill patient in an attempt to rid her of the devil.

According to a report in RT UK, the Staffordshire-based GP, Thomas O’Brien, 56, told the woman “the devil was having a right go” at her.

He reportedly gave his patient a book he and his wife had written called The Occult Checklist after which he performed an exorcism on her.
