Citizen's Rights & Moral Obligations

October 2020

Science, theology and the Covid-19 pandemic is the subject of a series of virtual debates being hosted online by Norwich Cathedral.

As Norwich Cathedral prepares to host the Natural History Museum's famous Diplodocus cast Dippy from January 2021, we invite you to watch the Science in the Café series of conversations this October and November on Norwich Cathedral’s YouTube Channel.

Session One - entitled Citizens' Rights and Moral Obligations - is now available to view on this webpage.

It features the following speakers:
Prof. Mark Wilkinson, from Norwich Medical School
Prof. Andy Jones, from Norwich Medical School
The Revd Canon Peter Doll, Canon Librarian at Norwich Cathedral

The discussion looks at how a community decides the allocation of resources into healthcare, how decisions are made about distribution and equity of delivery, use and misuse of the service.

Ahead of watching the video, you can download Prof. Wilkinson's slides here  and Prof. Jones' slides here.

If you have any questions you would like to ask after watching the video, you are very welcome to email
