A conversation about the goals and values of health and medicine.
At a time when health and medicine are regular news items,this annual event takes a different look at some of the most important and critical aspects of our lives – a day that goes beyond daily political arguments.
Critical Voices is part of a growing movement to understand health and medicine, not just as science, but as subjects which demand ethical judgements, empathy and wisdom. Their aim is to engage health professionals alongside the insights that come from ethicists, artists, photographers, writers, poets and performers; and the wider public.
