2019 Turner-Warwick lectures

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) Turner-Warwick lecturer scheme for trainee physicians celebrates the life and achievements of the RCP’s first female president, Dame Margaret Turner-Warwick. In 2019, the Turner-Warwick lectures were presented at 15 regional conferences across the UK and Northern Ireland. 

It was a great privilege and honour for me to be awarded the Turner-Warwick lecture in the North West. I enjoyed my lecture immensely and appreciated the unique opportunity to reach out beyond my own speciality and share my research findings to other medical specialists in a friendly setting.
