Medical Ethics and the Law
Medical Ethics and the Law - Group Leader: Sharon Levy
The Medical Law and Ethics Group meets monthly, generally on the first Monday of the month from 2-4. We have recently moved to larger accommodation in order to accommodate the increasing numbers who are interested in this topic.
Medical issues affect us all and the group attracts people who have an interest in discussing issues such as consent to treatment, rationing of treatment, euthanasia, surrogacy, assisted conception, genetics and mental health issues. No knowledge is needed just a lively enquiring mind. If members wish they can lead discussion on a topic. The conversation is always enjoyable and raises insights into medical matters .
The group leader is Sharon Levy. I have a background in medical law which led to me initiating the group and I am delighted at its popularity and the fascinating conversations it has provoked.
