2022 RCGP/SAPC elective prize winner update

We are pleased to announce an update on the winner of the 2022 RCGP/SAPC elective prize.

The winner is Ioan Dafydd Wardhaugh, a Medical Student from the University of Liverpool. Iaon spent a four week elective in a general practice in a Welsh rural community, and in their essay reflects on GP recruitment and retention. Iaon developed a helpful figure which summarises their suggestions for improving recruitment and retention against the challenges in a rural area, but which are applicable in many of our practices - "Changing the narrative" is absolutely key.

Congratulations to Iaon!

We encourage your medical students to apply this year:
