Left/outer radical is 'sickness'. Inner radical is a character found only in Chinese that acts phonetically to express 'make good'. To 'make an illness good' is to cure it. Henshall suggests remembering the inner radical as 'colleague' (僚) without 'person' (人), and as a mnemonic: 'Colleague's sickness healed by impersonal care.'
