In the build up to our 2017 annual CMA youth conference entitled ‘Catholics in Healthcare: Extraordinary Lives, Extraordinary Saints’ we asked young Catholics to write short posts for the CMA’s Facebook page about their favourite saints in healthcare. The first post went up on 18th September 2016, but the lives of the saints remain a timeless example to us. 

(Please note, we have included saints who are inspirational to us as young Catholics in healthcare and relevant to healthcare but were not primarily ‘in’ healthcare as such, eg St Joseph.)
