Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP delivered the Annual Plunkett Lecture to a capacity-filled lecture theatre at the Darlinghurst Campus of the Australian Catholic University, located in the grounds of St Vincent's Hospital.

Founded in 1992, the Plunkett Centre for Ethics is named after John Hubert Plunkett (1802-1869), the first Catholic Solicitor General and Attorney General of New South Wales.  The Centre is devoted to the study and teaching of ethics in clinical practice and biomedical research.

The Archbishop's lecture was titled: Drive-Thru Healthcare: is there more to the healing relationship than supply and demand? and the full video is available below.

Through events like its annual Plunkett Lecture, the Plunkett Centre for Ethics expresses its commitment to intellectual and professional excellence through research, teaching, consultation, and community engagement, and by bringing a Catholic perspective to all its endeavours.

Other Plunkett lecturers have included: NSW Senior Crown Prosecutor Mr Mark Tedeschi AM QC, Professor Justin Oakley, Professor Wendy Rogers, Dr Steve Matthews, Dr Andrew McGee, Dr Paul Biegler, Dr John Forge, and Professor Greg Craven.
