a toolkit for GPs and other health professionals

What are the qualities of a good doctor?

How do we know what these qualities are and what can we do to cultivate them?

The aim of this website is not only to suggest possible answers to these questions but to provide doctors and other health professionals with the philosophical tools to think about these issues for themselves, to reflect on their own practice, and arrive at their own conclusions.


This site focuses on general practice, on what it takes to deliver excellent whole person care.

However, all health professionals should find something useful here.

This toolkit was put together by Professor Quassim Cassam

of the University of Warwick
