David Zigmond, semi-retired GP and psychiatrist, will lead a seminar on wholistic primary care medicine. The seminar, in tune with his latest book, is entitled If You Want Good Personal Healthcare, See a Vet – why and how should we care for one another? What kinds of human suffering constitute illness? What does diagnosis mean? Can it be harmful? What is the role of our personal agency? What are the political aspects?
Meetings will be held on the first Monday of each month between 12.00 and 1.30 p.m. at the Union Church and Community Centre at the junction of Ferme Park Road and Weston Park, N8 9PX.
Refreshments are not provided. Members are invited to bring their lunch if they so wish to ‘munch and listen’.
