Women in healthcare
Dr Lizzie Wortley, Paediatric ST7 at University College Hospital, London
Dr Wortley is a Paediatric Registrar with an interest in advocacy (for CYP, parents carers and staff), health improvement and young people's health. Since becoming a registrar in 2014, Dr Wortley has had a full range of conversations about women in healthcare and the impact of family and fertility on life as a doctor. Dr Wortley has written about this on paediatricFOAM and now discusses it with juniors, seniors and medical students regularly to make sure there is no shame in debating what work life balance is, whether it exists and the impact it's having on us all.
