South of England regional conference

The Culture of Caring: Leadership for Change

20-21 October 2014

FMLM is delighted to announce its first regional conference.

"The delivery of healthcare is facing unprecedented financial, demographic and cultural challenges.  The issues at stake are the very survival of universal health care and the quality of that care, especially for the most vulnerable. This is a crucial time for medical leaders to either make the changes that will sustain the delivery of healthcare for the nation or to lose influence and credibility for a generation.  Join us at the FMLM South of England conference and discover how every doctor can make a meaningful contribution to the future role of medicine in the health of the nation."
Prof. William R. Roche, South of England Regional Lead, Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management
