Welfare Reps



Natasha McGowan - Year 3 

Welfare & Equalities Director 

Hi, I’m Natasha and I’m this year’s Welfare & Equalities Director! I was on placement in Southmead for the first term and will be in Gloucester from the end of January. In my spare time I love playing rugby and being part of Galenicals Choir!  If you would like some friendly support, a chat or signposting or other services please get in touch with myself, Bash or any of the welfare reps. You can contact any of our welfare reps, they don't need to be from your year group.

Ellie Harrison

Hello! My name is Ellie and I’m a first year student. Last year I did the Gateway to Medicine course at Bristol, and before that I taught English in Spain for a year! In my spare time I try not to let my Spanish language disappear completely, and still enjoy salsa dancing… although I do miss the Tortilla and Sangria!!

Kieran Howarth 

Hello! I’m Kieran and I’m really happy to be a Welfare Rep for Year 4. I’m currently on placement at St Michaels Hospital but will be in Gloucester after Christmas and in Southmead for 5th year. When not running late for ward rounds or clinics, I enjoy a lot of sport with a bit of an obsession on cycling and I attempt to play hockey for the Medic Hockey team. I also really love music and have been known to try to commandeer an aux, Bluetooth speaker or set of DJ decks at almost every available situation.

Hi there, I am a 5th year medical student on placement in Bath. In my spare time I enjoy running, playing the guitar and watching Leeds United win the premier league.
