Junior doctors v spin doctors: next meeting

7pm Thursday February 18th, Oxford Town Hall

“Grassroots junior doctors have been central to countering government spin, using social media and other strategies to generate stories and coverage in a truly 21st Century campaign”

So says Oxford-based Dr Rachel Clarke, former TV journalist turned junior doctor, who has been involved in coordinating that media strategy at a local and national level.

Rachel will be a guest speaker at our February branch meeting, to talk about the issues at stake in the junior doctors dispute, the campaign of disinformation being waged by the government, and how junior doctors have used social media, in particular, to expose their lies.

Join us for the discussion. New people very welcome.

  • Date: Thursday February 18th
  • Time: 7.00pm
  • Where? Oxford Town Hall
