Catholic Medical Association (UK) National Symposium

Ethical Questions on AI in Healthcare

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to impact all walks of life. As healthcare workers, we need to understand what this will mean for us and our patients. Come and listen to our speakers: two clinicians, a philosophical theologian, a clinical scientist, and a professor developing facial and voice behaviour analysis for supporting mental health. Hear about exciting research into ‘truly personalised’ treatment. Consider how we can secure fully human values in this technological revolution. Opportunities for questions.

Join us at the Parish Hall of The Good Shepherd

3 Thackeray’s Lane, Nottingham NG5 4HT

The venue has full disability access, including a ramp from street level.


There is regular street parking on the north side of the road in front of the church, and on the streets joining on the south side of Thackeray’s Lane. Please take care not to block drives, especially near the Church.

There is limited pay and display parking (£3 whole day) by the recreation ground just to the west of the Church.

The Church has a very small car park, level with the entrance so easy wheelchair access to the hall, but has asked that in general this is not used so it’s available for parishioners. But if someone has specific mobility needs, please get in touch and we can request that a reserved space is available.

Public transport

From Nottingham station, you can get to the Good Shepherd hall in approx 35 mins, using public transport (buses/tram) and walk. Check on Google maps (above) for your travel date and time. (Alternatively, a group of people might consider a shared taxi, which may be about 20 mins, depending on the time of day.)

Social – meal out Saturday evening

Those who live in Nottingham, or are staying overnight afterwards, may like to get together to go out for an informal meal together in the evening after the 6pm vigil Mass. If you think you may be interested please indicate after payment when booking.


If you would like to stay the night beforehand or after, there are a number of local hotels. The closest is probably the Nottingham North (Daybrook) Premier Inn hotel  – only a 15 min walk or 3 min drive away with parking.
