Stephen McGann is best known for his role as Dr Turner in the BBC series Call The Midwife. He is also a public speaker with a background in science, having graduated from Imperial College London with a master’s in Science Communication. In January 2016, he published a companion book to Call the Midwife called “Doctor Turner’s Casebook”, in which he revisits medical cases featured in the series and explores their socio-historical contexts.
Stephen is interested in the contrasting roles of doctor and nurse in the mid-20th century and today. He also has a fascinating perspective on the healing role of the doctor and the ethical issues that are part of everyday clinical practice. During this November’s event Stephen will speak about his role in “Call the Midwife” and give an actor’s perspective on doctors, patients, their interrelationships and how these are changing for better or worse.
The talk includes entry to an exclusive exhibition of midwifery artefacts held by the Royal College of Midwives and Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists, many of which will be on public display for the first time. Some of these items include: original midwives’ bags belonging to different periods, uniforms dating back to 1904, and a selection of midwives’ casebooks mirroring the changing nature of the profession across the century.
Wine and nibbles will be served and there will be an opportunity to network afterwards.
This event is being held in collaboration with the College of Medicine.
Tickets at reduced prices are available for members of the RCOG, RCM and the College of Medicine.
