Our amazing trainees were very successful at the HEIW BEST Trainee awards last Thursday evening

From over 80 trainees nominated across all medical and dental specialities, we had 3 trainees shortlisted for the final awards night;

  • Isra Hassan (ST7) for her contribution to medical education through her perioperative medicine training delivery across many training grades (FY1-ST7), Consultants and other healthcare professionals this year
  • David Rees (ST6 Dual FICM/Anaes) in the innovation and technology category for his work teaching bedside echocardiography in UHW
  • Killian Walley (CT2) in the QI category for his work introducing an emergency grab bag and pre-filled syringe cost reduction programme in Merthyr during his CT1 year

Isra was announced Winner in the Medical Education category, with David and Killian Runners-Up in their respective categories - Congratulations to them all!

RCoA FRCA Examiners

I am delighted to announce that Declan Maloney and Eleanor Lewis have both recently been appointed as RCoA FRCA Examiners

I would like to express thanks on behalf of the School to Declan, as he steps down from his role as RCoA Deputy Regional Adviser for Anaesthetics & School Quality Lead this spring. He has given over 12 years of committed service to the School as College Tutor & DRAA in North Wales - it'll be a relief for him to know that the term of examiner is only 10 years!

Good luck to Eleanor & Declan as they fly the Welsh flag at the College exams, and both will undoubtedly be a source of great support to our local trainees in their exam preparation
