Anne Slowther qualified in medicine in 1980 and her clinical area is general practice (family medicine). She has a Masters degree in Medical Ethics and Law from King's College London and a DPhil in medical ethics from the University of Oxford. She was a founder member of the UK Clinical Ethics Network and currently combines her academic work with her role as a clinical ethicist at the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust. She leads the Values Law and Ethics theme in the Warwick Medical School Graduate entry course, and she has delivered training workshops for members of clinical ethics committees since 2004.
