Two young Blackpool doctors have won teaching awards for supporting younger medics.

The Foundation Teaching Award was won by Dr Meng Jiang Lim with Dr Laura Horne chosen as the runner up for her effort to support younger doctors.

Dr Lim said about his award: “It was quite unexpected to win the award as there were other colleagues of mine who worked very hard to deliver high quality teaching.

“Gaining the award has made me feel more confident when I progress to be a teacher in my GP career.”

The Foundation Teaching Award was set up by the Medical Education department to recognise the work the training foundation doctors deliver to medical students while they are studying at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

Nigel Kidner was recently awarded as ‘Trainer of the Year’ by the Trust and was given the opportunity to present younger doctors with this award (inset).

He said: “I was delighted to present the awards and I’m sure Meng and Laura will feel as pleased as I was to also receive a recognition award.

“The Trust is showing that it values the educational input made and that we have a culture of learning.”
