Dr Lauren Wogan

SpecialityGP leadership fellow, Health Education England

Dr Lauren Wogan is a GPST3 and GP leadership fellow working with Health Education England across the Yorkshire and Humber region. Her main interests are widening participation and GP recruitment. Widening Participation involves getting students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds enthusiastic about careers in healthcare and as a previous widening participation student herself, she knows this can make all the difference to young people! She is passionate about developing local workforces by encouraging these students into healthcare roles as evidence shows that these students are more likely to continue to work in deprived areas, improving staffing numbers within these difficult to recruit regions and improving patient outcomes and safety.
