WHO WE ARE
The Social Mobility Commission reported that just 4% of UK doctors come from working-class backgrounds. That is not merely a diversity gap, it is a diversity abyss where we lose excellent future doctors. Widening Participation Medics Network (WPMN) is a national charitable organisation consisting of over 100 volunteers who are building a medical workforce that is representative of the population it serves. We are widening participation in medicine by representing the underrepresented. WPMN endeavours to create a united voice for our 600+ aspiring medical students, current medical students and doctors that speaks with authority and power to drive positive change within the medical workforce and enhance patient care.

Nicolle Arroyave, Deputy CEO
"WPMN has opened up many opportunities since I joined last year and made me feel more comfortable being a WP medic - less out of place in the medical community."
Craig Liddell, CEO
"Having been a Regional Representative within WPMN since 2020, I have relished seeing how WPMN has grown and made local, regional, and national impacts via its many hardworking teams. I cannot wait to see what is next for WPMN and I am excited to both further develop what is ongoing and explore new and exciting other avenues as CEO.."
