The 19th Whitney Memorial Lecture at Poole Hospital, on the 18th November, delivered by Dr David Pencheon, OBE, sparked a great deal of deep thought and debate.  Historically health professionals have influenced political and social policy – consider the abolition of slavery and the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) – and are required to now extend their influence to the massive issue of climate change.

For those that want to find out more,  please see this list of references that David referred to throughout his lecture.
