If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

Preferences Cookies

These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you're in) and tailor the website to provide enhanced features and content for you.

For example, they can be used to remember certain log-in details, changes you've made to text size, font and other parts of pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you've asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. These cookies may be used to ensure that all our services and communications are relevant to you. The information these cookies collect cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices you've previously made or personalise your browsing experience meaning you would have to reset these for every visit. In addition, some functionality may not be available if this category is switched off.

The civilian doctors conference 2019 is your opportunity to get the latest updates from experts and network with colleagues.

Date: 25 September 2019

Location: London

Time: 9:00AM - 4:30PM

This conference, for all civilian doctors employed by the Ministry of Defence (MoD), provides an opportunity for you to get the latest updates from experts and take part in discussions; to meet and network with colleagues and consider issues relevant to you. 


  • Develop your skills in team building and change leadership through in-depth sessions with Mark Faulkner People Development.
  • Lt Col Geoff Hall will discuss 'Being comfortable with chaos – leadership qualities for healthcare systems', introducing a notion that traditional hierarchical structures and organisations are now outdated, and that to survive modernity and thrive, healthcare leaders need to apply a fresh lens on what matters: self and our relationships with others. 
  • Refresh your knowledge on topics including: Lyme disease with Dr Anne Cruikshank, RCGP Lyme Disease Spotlight Project clinical champion; and CQC inspections with Dr Garry Higgins, CQC head of DMS inspections.
