Dear Colleague,

March 2021

Our bursary to support a graduate-entry medical student is again available for the next academic year and I have appended our flyer to provide further details. This bursary is designated for post-graduate education and has generally been used to support a first year student on a graduate-entry medicine course or on a 5 year programme. We are particularly keen to identify a student from the Wyre Forest district, i.e. from the towns of Kidderminster, Stourport, Bewdley and surrounding areas of North Worcestershire.

Best wishes,

Dr Martin Lewis, Chairman of Trustees.

Dear Colleagues,

     Kidderminster PGMC Trustees Reports for 2020 / 2021

Accounts for the year ending 4th April 2021 confirm a balance of £132,867 in the Societyís reserves, down from £140,420 in 2019/20. At the same time the Trustís income from our COIF Fixed Interest Investment has declined again marginally to £4,183 and the capital sum invested has depreciated by just £1,931 to £127,542. As a result of this rather modest investment income, and the expenditure of another £9,085 on three more bursary awards, the excess of expenditure over income is up to £7,553. This compares with a lower negative balance of only £871 in the previous financial year.

For the 2019/20 academic year, Birmingham Medical School put forward as the choice for their bursary allocation, Jamie Richardson, a young man from Alvechurch, and his end of year report has been posted on the Societyís website together with those of the other two recipients for that year, Bryony Garfield and Will Hodgeson.

For the 2020/21 academic year, Birmingham Medical School nominated Harriet Mintz, a young lady from Warwick who had previously been awarded a PhD from Warwick Medical School, and our trustees met electronically towards the end of last year to consider applications for the second bursary. Contact had again been made with all 30 medical schools in the UK and, of the applications received, none had any direct residential links to Wyre Forest. However, one was born in Droitwich and the other had been employed by Worcestershire County Council Mental Health and Suicide Prevention programme in the Wyre Forest area. Both had impressive CVís and excellent references and we decided that each was deserving of the KMS bursary.

For all of the above account details we are again extremely grateful for the service generously provided by Gordon Cox, and the trustees also wish to express our sincere thanks to John Tudor, who has now stepped down from the committee after more than 15 years of loyal service.  We would certainly like to wish him well in his retirement. Happily, Parveen Mann has kindly agreed to replace John as a trustee of the Society and her Deed of Appointment has generously been prepared without charge by Jonathan Price. Please let me know if these, or any other matters in this report, need further clarification.

                                        Best wishes,

                            Martin Lewis, Chairman of the Trustees.
