Wales PERCs

In recent years, the College has recognised the importance of explaining its work and the work of pathologists to the wider public, through the establishment of the Public Engagement programme.

The programme has been a great success and to maintain momentum we have recruited Public Engagement Regional Coordinators (PERCs), to work with the College’s Director of Engagement and Publishing and the Public Engagement Manager, as well as their regional Council in delivering the programme successfully across the UK. The PERC role is a voluntary position and helps provide support to those organising events in their region.

Public Engagement Regional Coordinators (Wales)

    Microbiology

    I have been a Consultant in Microbiology and Infectious Diseases at the University Hospital of Wales, since 2007. I am the clinical lead for the microbiology service, orthopaedic lead for microbiology/infectious diseases and lead clinician for the Blood Borne Viral Hepatitis action plan for Wales. I have completed the Science Communication and Advanced Science Communication training sessions run by the RCPath and have been involved in a number of public engagement events, including the delivery of a virtual hospital session in several local schools and a Science Museum 'Lates' event. I enjoy taking part in public engagement activities and am thrilled to be taking on the coordinator role for Microbiology.
