    Medical Director inspires Wigan & Leigh College’s future medics  Image

    Medical Director inspires Wigan & Leigh College’s future medics

    March 2nd 2017

    A leading medical expert visited Wigan & Leigh College’s aspiring medics for an insight into the world of medicine, a world full of kindness, compassion and caring.

    Medical Director at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, Dr Umesh Prabhu, joined the College’s A Level Professional Honours Programme students to inspire their future careers.

    The group of A Level students who are studying on a Health Professional or Applied Medical pathway were delighted to meet the highly-regarded medical expert as part of their Professional Development Day.

    The renowned medical professional who has previously met the Queen for his commitment to the National Health Service (NHS) is very proud and passionate about the NHS and has carried out extensive work on patient safety, quality and professionalism. Following a successful career in medicine Dr Prabhu is set to embark on a new challenge as Patient Safety Champion to make the NHS safest and the best.

    Tanya Evans, Head of Teaching and Academic Studies at Wigan & Leigh College says, “The A Level Professional Honours Programme is an excellent pathway for young people to gain an understanding in their chosen profession. All students who attended the seminar with Dr Prabhu are aspiring medics, whether that be pharmacists, doctors or researchers. The opportunity to meet a Medical Director was aspirational for many of our students who one day hope to establish a career as successful as Dr Prabhu’s.”

    Dr Umesh Prabhu, added, “The NHS and Social care are two jewels in the crown of our great nation. Students are our future doctors, engineers, nurses and leaders of our nation. I consider it as my duty to inspire, motivate and help them to be successful. It was a great honour and pleasure to meet some of the brightest youngsters of Wigan. I want to thank the College for inviting me to meet so many wonderful students.”

    The former Paediatric Consultant, now Medical Director, who trained at Oxford, Edinburgh and Leeds is also a non-executive member of the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA), National Clinical Assessment Service (NCAS) adviser on secondary care and Clinical Director for NHS Professionals.

    The Medical Society which was formed as part of the students Professional Development Day enables students to gain an understanding of their chosen profession.  This is delivered through work experience within a medical setting, undertaking additional qualifications such as first aid or through guest speaker workshops and masterclasses.
