RETRAINING / RESKILLING
If a doctor found him or herself unable to practice in the long term the Society has been able to help with retraining costs and moving to a new profession or sector.
WIDOW(ER) & FAMILY SUPPORT
For many years the support of spouses and family when a society members passed away with leaving proper provision was the biggest call on our resources. If your parent(s), partner or spouse were members of the Society and have passed away leaving you in difficulty please contact us.
The Society supports a number of students whose families do not have the resources to see them through Medical degrees. It takes many years to train as a doctor and this can be a real strain on family finances. We also hope that those we assist in this way might eventually become members themselves thus helping to ensure the future of the Society.
We have also been able to help in cases where a young doctor is unable to afford the necessary courses and examinations to progress in their careers.
