Dame Sally Davies, CMO for England, visits the MACH

The MACH was honoured to welcome Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer for England, to Melbourne this morning at a MACH Council breakfast discussion on workplace and leadership culture in the medical professions. Dame Sally highlighted the importance of using one's social capital and values to prioritise patient care above all else.

Our breakfast also featured a presentation by cardiothoracic surgeon Dr Victoria Atkinson of St Vincent's Health Australia on her Ethos program, which aims to "Redefine Normal" in medicine and reduce abusive workplace behaviours among health professionals.
