Welcome to The Changing Face Of Medicine project. This project, for the first time, brings together representatives from across the medical profession, patient groups, commercial organisations to look at the role of the doctor in the future. Our over-arching ambition is to influence long-term policy in this area. Additionally we will seek to engage the public with our findings to begin to generate constructive debate and further influence future health policy. Our initial time horizon for this work will be looking to the role of the doctor in 2040.
