Congratulations to Dr Penny Neild, one of our Consultant Gastroenterologists, who was presented with the President’s Medal at the recent British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) annual conference.

The President’s Medal recognises a member of the profession for their outstanding contribution to the field of gastroenterology.

Penny, who has worked at the Trust since 2001, has been a great champion for the training and development of gastroenterologists, chairing the society’s training committee and helping to improve nutrition training. She has also helped to set up and run a mentoring scheme for consultants and trainees.

Penny told us: “It was a great honour to receive this award from the BSG. I have been privileged over the years to have been given some great opportunities to be involved in areas of positive change within the Trust and wider world of gastroenterology.”

“The team here have been sending me messages of congratulations since the conference, which I’ve really appreciated, and I’d like to thank them for all their support over this time.”

Well done again to Penny!
