Linacre Ethics Forum

I am very happy to publicise this excellent initiative for Catholic medics. Here are the details. There is a link to a poster which could go in Church porches.
A chance for junior healthcare professionals and students (medics, nurses, pharmacists etc. are welcome!) to explore and discuss Catholic healthcare ethics. Each month a senior practitioner or other expert will be invited to give a 30 minute presentation, followed by discussion. The aim will be to understand the Church’s teaching, and explore ways in which we can present it sympathetically to patients, colleagues and managers.

Meetings start at 6.30pm (for 7pm) and take place in Vaughan House, Francis Street, SW1P 1QN (behind Westminster Cathedral, near Victoria tube station). There is Mass at 5.30pm in the Cathedral.

Meetings are as follows:

27th February - Christian Ethics in Neonatal Care - Prof. John Wyatt

3rd April - Fertility Treatments - Mrs Nicole Parker

30th April - Ethical Issues in General Practice - Dr Mike Delany

13th May - Pregnancy Counselling - Sr Roseann Reddy (TBC)

To help publicise this event please feel free to use the poster here, or contact us below.
