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.

Our Founder, Jade Scott-Blagrove

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.."

WHAT WE DO

Our mission is to provide a supportive community to underrepresented groups that breaks down barriers at all stages of the medical journey by sharing resources, experiences and opportunities. 

 

Aspiring Medics

Medicine is competitive - even without the additional barriers that may be in place due to your background. We offer free help from choosing Medicine through to admissions tests, interviews and preparing to start University!

Medical Students

The barriers individuals face don't disappear during medical school. We are here to provide support if that be on managing finances, university life or guidance as you progress through your degree and into your foundations years.

Doctors

From deciding a speciality through to accessing some much needed support such as our RadReach programme.... WPMN has you covered! 

Conference

Our 2022 Conference brought doctors and medical students together to create change on a local, regional and national level. It was entitled WP Unites: Creating Change Together!

Blogs

Our content team write informative blogs on a wide range of topics for aspiring medics through to doctors to provide support and guidance where it may be lacking.

Events

Our Events team plan events throughout the year on a plethora of subjects! If that be UCAT webinars for aspiring medics or Foundation Pearls series for soon to be doctors!

Forums and Support

Our Forums are a great place to get free advice and support from medical students and doctors whatever stage of the medical journey you are at from volunteers who have been exactly where you are now!
