Cassie Dighton

Cassie Dighton was previously a Volunteer at the Progress Educational Trust (PET), and for more than 10 years has worked as a lawyer with a special interest in medical regulation and ethics. She was previously a Legal Adviser at the General Medical Council, where she saw on a daily basis how important ethical decisions impact upon the medical profession. This inspired her to study Philosophy of Medicine at the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries, where she remains a Fellow, and she is now studying for an MA in Medical Ethics and Law at Keele University. She is passionate about PET and its objectives, and volunteers as often as she can while maintaining her legal practice in medical defence.
