Dr Catherine Mullany Annual Memorial Lecture
An annual lecture for doctors in training to become GPs is being launched in memory of Catherine Mullany. It is hoped the lecture will provide a lasting tribute to Catherine, who was training to become a GP and working in the trust’s paediatric department when she died.
The first Dr Catherine Mullany Annual Memorial Lecture will see a link-up between Abertawe Bro Morgannwg’s Department of Paediatrics and Neath Port Talbot GP Vocational Training Scheme.
The lecture will be delivered by recently retired consultant paediatrician Dr Dewi Evans.
Mike Cosgrove, also a consultant paediatrician with the trust, said: “Catherine was a very popular and extremely competent doctor, and everyone who knew her found her a joy to work with. She had a wonderful future ahead of her.
“We wanted to do something positive in her memory. Following discussions with the GP training scheme at Neath Port Talbot Hospital, we agreed to launch an annual lecture.”
He added: “It is aimed at GPs in training, but all who knew Catherine are welcome to attend.”
The lecture will be at Neath Port Talbot Hospital Post-Graduate Centre Lecture Hall on Tuesday, September 15, at 4pm.
