Medical consultants endorse Arfon AM's call for Medical School in Bangor

Arfon Assembly Member Siân Gwenllian’s campaign to have a Medical School established in Bangor is gathering momentum and support. Following the endorsements of two medical students last week two highly respected consultants have given their names to the campaign. Dr Rhys Davies is a Consultant Neurologist at Walton, Liverpool; and Mr Phillip Moore is a Consultant Surgeon at the Ear, Nose and Throat Department at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor.

“It’s essential that we increase the numbers of local doctors, and establishing a Medical School in Bangor is the best way of achieving this”, said Mr Moore, who is a regular contributor to the Ward Plant series on S4C.
Said Dr Rhys Davies, who works in Walton, Liverpool but hails from Nefyn, Pen Llyn, “The campaign for a medical school in Bangor deserves all the support it can get. The school would lay the foundation for the medical education of young Welsh bilingual students, as well as attracting talented young people from elsewhere. It would be a way of addressing the need for doctors in rural Wales.”

A petition started by Plaid Cymru Arfon for those who support the campaign has already attracted hundreds of signatures, and pressure is increasing on the Welsh Government to announce a strategy that would respond to the need for a Medical School in Bangor in order to stabilise medical services in hospitals and communities across the north.

    Establishing a Medical School not an easy task for everyone because they require a mixture of confidence of vision, support from many investor groups, acceptable fiscal and human funds, educational proficiency, patience, and persistence. I believe after working on this standard, so every success in their visions. Thank you for the information and that is so inspirational for students to pursue doctoring dreams even more.
