The medical profession is used to significant challenges, but today Christian doctors and nurses face a wide range of unprecedented pressures. The insatiable demands to do more with less are set in a context of intense debate around liberalisation of morality and medical ethics. Christians in the profession speak of facing marginalisation, opposition and persecution.
But history shows how periods of challenge are turned by God into ground-breaking opportunities for His Kingdom, and the Christian Medical Fellowship (CMF) is committed to help bring that about among its members.
CMF activities range from running national conferences to organising local prayer groups; from organising training events to producing expert publications; from advising public policy to speaking on national media. These ministry areas will continue to develop and expand to best support Christian health professionals by helping them connect and grow, speak and serve, for Christ.
The Fellowship's CEO for the past 18 years has been appointed to lead the International Christian Medical and Dental Association, the global umbrella body for national fellowships, leading to a rare opportunity for a suitably gifted and experienced leader to join the London-based CMF, at a time of escalating need and rapid change.
This is a highly significant leadership role among the UK's Christian medical professionals, ensuring the continued provision of the highest levels of direction, support and encouragement to enable doctors and nurses to work and serve with confidence and integrity.
CMF is the UK's leading membership body for Christian doctors and nurses. They serve over 6,600 doctors and nurses, medical and nursing students, with a staff of 24 and a budget of £1.5M.
CMF exists to glorify God by uniting and equipping Christian doctors and nurses to live and speak for Jesus Christ. The formal aims of CMF are discipleship, evangelism, mission and promoting values, and the CEO will take the overall responsibility for delivering in these areas.
Expressions of interest in the role are invited from individuals with relevant professional and leadership experience, spiritual maturity and servant-leadership gifting.
