Doctor in the house

Each year Desford Medical Centre offers two budding medical students the chance to get work experience with them in preparation for careers as doctors. This year Harsh Patel and Olivia Timperley will take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to see how our health-care professionals operate in a real world context and understand the organisational challenges that they face on a day to day basis. As always we are very grateful for the support and encouragement our local community offers our students in a variety of learning contexts.

“Olivia and I have joined Desford Surgery’s Patient Participation Group (PPG). Being part of the PPG requires us to attend quarterly meeting in which we discuss current matters and ways in which we can improve the surgery. This type of experience is extremely useful as we both intend to study medicine at university.” – Harsh Patel
