The SCMA

The SCMA is a group of Catholic Healthcare professionals who live and work in Scotland. We share an interest in integrating our faith and work lives and aim to:

  • Provide a forum for Catholic healthcare professionals to meet and support one another
  • Provide educational opportunities that increase understanding of the Catholic faith and how it relates to different field’s in health and social care
  • Work together with others to articulate a clear, orthodox Catholic voice in relation to important bioethical issues

Our principal activities are educational and operate through the Turnbull Ethics Group at the University of Glasgow. We also run an annual conference for Catholic health care professionals.
