We were delighted to welcome Dr Richenda Tisdale to CSMS today for the first academic lecture of the year. Dr Tisdale is a former eye surgeon who now works as a medico-legal advisor for the Medical Protection Society.

The lecture covered the fundamental principles of medical ethics, from the right of a patient to choose what happens to them to the rights that give Doctors the ability to prescribe medication with known side-effects.

Dr Tisdale was an engaging speaker who enthused the students, especially when she posed some ethical conundrums for students to consider.

We would like to thank Dr Tisdale for her time and effort in delivering this lecture.
