The Western Health & Social Care trust has welcomed Dr Lisa Gilmore from Coleraine who is the first student from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland to have successfully gained a position at the South West Acute Hospital, Enniskillen.
Dr Gilmore trained in Enniskillen in her final year and has secured a post graduate Foundation Year Program position in the South West Acute Hospital and will be commencing work along with the new intake of junior doctors in August 2020.
The South West Acute Hospital is a designated teaching hospital of the Royal College of Surgeons since 2013 with the student numbers from third and final years expanding each year under the leadership of Mr Mark Grannell, Consultant Surgeon and Lead for Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Dr Monica Monaghan, Consultant Cardiologist, will take over from Mr Grannell in this capacity as he has leaves the Trust in the summer to commence a Consultant Surgeon post in the Republic of Ireland.
A spokesperson for WHSCT said “We wish thank Mr Grannell for his leadership and dedication over the past number of years and wish him every success in his future career.”
