promoting Christian values
We play a strategic role by providing thoughtful and clearly written resources for students and doctors, and by making authoritative submissions to government and other official bodies. We also equip Christian doctors and students to speak out personally: in the NHS, the BMA and Royal Colleges; through government; and nationally and internationally in Christian, secular and medical media.
