As a medical doctor migrating to the United Kingdom, I was eagerly looking to connect with other colleagues to understand what it is like to be an Adventist Doctor in the UK and to learn firsthand from colleagues about the health care system. Visiting various churches and events, did not bring me closer to my goal and I continued to feel the void. As I continued to pray I was impressed on various occasions to start an organisation. As an adventurous person, I kept seeking counsel from the Lord and in 2019 the impression became so strong that I knew I had to heed the call, and on July 27th, 2020 The Adventist Doctors’ Support Network was established.
Our Objectives & Aims
Unity & Support
The group aims to unite and support doctors and medical students (in the future we hope to include other Adventist health professionals) where we can discuss our work dilemma's, ethical cases and more.
Through member led sessions and guest speaker presentations we aim to encourage growth in knowledge. Members will be given the opportunity to share their expertise and experience to educate other members. The group aims to arrange continuing professional development (CPD) for the members.
As doctors and medical students, we aim to provide mentoring for our junior members. More senior doctors interested in the mentoring programme are invited to contact ADSN with their request. We will do our utmost to connect you with the right person.
We are to go out and spread the gospel. The right hand of the gospel is the health message. Through the health message we can witness to our community and give education and health on how to care for themselves, thus speed the work of the Lord and His soon return.
Often times missionary projects are organised outside of the UK. The Group aims to allow for every member to work together and do missionary work within their area or county. There is a lot we can do for our community and best place to start is in our own neighbourhoods.

“I’ve been in ADSN for about 6 months now. I heard about it from someone I met at a potluck in a church I visited! The main reason for joining is that I wanted to have the support of other colleagues who have the same passion for sharing Christ through medical service and, who can relate and advice on some of the common challenges experienced as an Adventist doctor. It’s nice to have a mix of colleagues at different stages of their careers and who specialise in different areas. I’ve appreciated both the medical and spiritual content shared by various members in the group. It’s such a blessing to be able to share our burdens and pray for each other during our pray meetings. There’s a lot of ways that ADSN can help us share the gospel with others through medical ministry and I think we’ve only just scratched the surface! “
