Your WARD Team
Andy is a Staff Grade Anesthetist, with an interest in Obstetrics. He helped to introduce WARD in RUH Bath last year, and is now happy to be part of the Taunton team. His favourite colour is blue, he has an Axolotl called Alan, and a Madagascan hissing cockroach called Henry Frampton.
Hints and Tips
Neil is an ST4 in Obs and Gynae. He remembers well the challenges of F1/2. He had a brief foray into ENT before settling on O&G as a career. He has done 3 years OOPR and has a PhD, and is now returning to training full time. He was an Army Medical Officer after medical school, and is now in the Army Reserves.
Caitlin is an ST5 Respiratory Registrar. She trained mostly in London and Kent before moving to Bristol to start registrar training last August. She's taken lots of breaks along the way to work in Malawi and do some COPD research and plans to do some more in the next couple of years'
Frankie is ST3 Geriatrics. Interest in pastoral care, the outdoor life and a gin tipple.
Rob is an ST3 EM trainee currently working in ICU. He is interested in well-being, the outdoors, and sunny pub gardens.
Luke is a CT1 trainee in ACCS anaesthetics. This is his second year helping out with WARD. After completing foundation years in Severn, he spent a year out as a CTF in Bristol and love spending my free time playing tennis, hiking and on the beach.
Lydia is an F2 at MPH. She's keen to support junior doctor well-being especially the F1s who are making the all-important transition from student to doctor! Outside of medicine, she enjoys singing (especially Jazz) and has an interest in Philosophy and sewing.
Sommer is an ST5 in geriatric medicine at Musgrove. She's seen the amazing work of the WARD team working here over the last year and is excited to get involved and help support her junior doctor colleagues. She grew up in America and firmly believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day- especially if there are waffles!
Ellie has taken a windy route to ST3 in Acute Medicine. She spent some time volunteering in Borneo, trained as a GP in Somerset and worked in palliative care in New Zealand. She thinks that safe working conditions and well-being are so important. Cycling, regular croissants and tag rugby help keep her sane!
