Bio I'm a gastroenterology trainee who has developed a keen interest in education, coaching and mentoring and support structures. Initially triggered by my involvement as a mentee on a pilot national mentoring programme with The British Society of Gastroenterology. Since then, taking on a Coaching and Mentoring Fellowship within Health Educaton England (EoE) has enabled me to work with colleagues across the region to establish mentoring schemes for trainee doctors and also work towards embedding this valuable opportunity within the fabric of training. In training towards a diploma and coaching and mentoring and having completed a PGCE I continue my involvement and I am also working with the BSG in setting up a National mentoring scheme for Gastroenterologists. When not knee-deep in a variety of different projects I spend most of her free time with my partner and children running around the East Anglian countryside.
