In this talk, the concept of the 'good' doctor will be explored and how we can ensure that our doctors are 'good'. This question is crucial at time when morale in the health services appears low and inquiries reveal poor practice by some health care professionals.

The idea of 'virtue' in medical practice will be considered, and how this may be linked to professional identity and responsibility.
