About Medicine and Me

Medicine and Me meetings aim to provide an outline of current best practices, future updates of important conditions, and give a direct voice to patients and their carers and enable them to discuss their concerns and reflections on the impact of diagnosis, investigation and management. Physicians, surgeons and indeed all healthcare professionals, continue to learn from and be inspired to greater efforts to improve care by hearing directly from patients.

We would like to thank our anonymous donor for their generous support enabling this platform for patient focused charities and free access to the Medicine and Me programme.
