At the Eastern Division

Wednesday, 2 May

I had a really good experience at the Eastern Division’s spring meeting in Cambridge yesterday. This is a large Division, and there are lots of different challenges across different parts of the region. I had dinner with the Executive Committee the night before, and enjoyed their good company and informed and stimulating discussion. The Division certainly knows how to pick beautiful but affordable venues for their meetings, and I very much enjoyed waking up to the view of the topiary gardens and long vistas of Madingley Hall – even on a rain soaked day!

Today, I’m in my home town of Manchester for the North West Division spring meeting. I promised myself I wouldn’t mention this, but Manchester City 1 Manchester United 0! Hope that doesn’t jinx the remaining matches. Although my allegiance is to City, both clubs deserve credit for having huge social enterprise arms helping young people out of the social determinants that put them at risk of poor mental and physical health.

In other news, I’m delighted to say that Dr Helen Bruce has been appointed Associate Dean for Equivalence. She will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the College’s work related to applications for Specialist Registration via CESR (Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration).
