The Hippocratic Oath
by Fr Bernard McNally
We are pleased to invite you to another meeting on the Second Saturday and Sunday of Lent (25th -26th February) next year. But for now, it is high time we had an AGM of the Kent Branch. Geraldine Mceever and Ian Jessiman have held the posts of Master and secretary for many years and have both asked to be “let off”.
So, we will be having an evening meeting in November at which we will elect new officers for the Kent branch of the CMA. Any member of the CMA can stand for offices and all nominations are very welcome. Having an AGM should not take too long and so we will also have the Rosary or Mass, some food and a talk on the Hippocratic Oath by Fr Bernard McNally, Guy’s Hospital Chaplain. We do hope that you can come.
Whether you can come or not, please do the following Please can you all let us have your email addresses. That way we can keep you up to date with the latest edition of the Catholic Medical Quarterly and other important occasional news. Please note that only Kent Branch members may vote at the AGM.
Finally, please note that the Catholic Medical Quarterly is now on line at www.cmq.org.uk and we think it looks rather splendid with some excellent articles. Members should have received their copies by post recently. If not please tell us as we will need to check the membership database. (Replies to firstname.lastname@example.org)

Many years ago I visited Kos and brought back a T-shirt with the Hippocratic oath printed on it in Greek. My sister (a consultant geriatric psychiatrist used to wear it sometimes to medical conferences where her colleagues who did not know Greek twigged that there might be something suspicious about it. Here are the details of the conference:
