The School of Primary Care and the Severn Faculty RCGP were delighted to host the MDU GP Trainee Excellence Awards and Michael Lennard Reception on Wednesday 22nd July 2015 to celebrate the achievements of all GP trainees who have completed their training this year.

All trainees were commended for successfully attaining MRCGP and completing GP training in Severn this year, and welcomed to the Severn Faculty RCGP at the Michael Lennard Reception. In addition, trainees who had been shortlisted for the Excellence Awards each gave a short presentation about their many and varied activities. The breadth of activities and levels of achievement were certainly impressive. The winners of the Robin While prize, Excellence Awards and Patch Awards were announced and presented with their prizes. Congratulations to you all! Details of the sponsors and winners are below.

Professor Bill Irish and Dr Henry Nwume (GPST3) were the 'guest' speakers this year. Bill and Henry worked in Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis earlier in the year and shared their very personal experiences of that time. It was a powerfully moving and inspirational talk, which will have a lasting impact for all who heard it.
