Dr Morgan has been working hard to promote general practice in Wales. Over the past year, the Bridgend GP has been instrumental in running a video competition to showcase the country as a ‘great place to live and work as a GP’.
He organised a GP taster workshop aimed at Year 12 school students – something he says has never been done before. Around 48 pupils attended the event, where they were able to visit 10 interactive stations that allowed them to experience a range of aspects of general practice.
The RCGP Wales executive officer hopes to extend this in the coming year by producing a webinar and going into 50 schools to promote general practice as a career choice, as well as develop work that can be included in the Welsh baccalaureate. He is also planning to launch another competition to promote Wales – but this time just for schools and colleges.
What others say about him ‘Runs an event to support access to medical school for students from deprived backgrounds.’
