Subject: "A Christian GP's Perspective of the Current Medical Issues Facing Us Today"
Dr David Donovan (Meeting on ZOOM)
Saturday, 8th January 2022 at 7.00pm
Dr David Donovan ( MA MBChB DRCOG DipOccMed MRCGP) is a GP partner in a Christian Medical Practice in March, deep in the Cambridgeshire Fens. He has over 30 years experience of working in the NHS, having trained in Scotland and Cambridge. He is committed to maybe a more traditional model of holistic General Practice that considers both the physical, emotional and spiritual components of what defines us as human, all vital in the consideration of what defines health and wellness. Increasingly the division between ethics, faith and medicine is becoming more stark and discernment is crucial in navigating, professionally, and personally the way forward.
Since 2003 both he and his nurse trained wife Shirley have run a small medical mission in the southern Nigerian delta, training up locals as health care workers but with the Gospel central in the Mission, medicine being the vehicle. They run two clinics , and eye centre, employing 28 workers. This work is central to their lives, and a clear calling to the furtherance of the Gospel in a difficult and volatile region of Western Africa. ( www.newfoundations.org.uk)
