Northern regional coordinator - Jessica Overton
Hello there, I'm Jess, a 4th year medical student at Liverpool and the regional coordinator for the North in 2014/2015.
Our branches include Newcastle, Leeds, Sheffield, Hull, York, Manchester, Liverpool and Lancaster. As you can see we're a very active region and each of our branches are unique with some being larger and more established than others. I hope we can use this to our advantage and my aim is to bring together the North for some regional training where branches will benefit from sharing this wealth of experience.
I'm here to help support branches in any way that I can so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
If you are interested in finding out more about the region please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
