Dr Liam Morris

Consultant Gastroenterologist
I studied at the University of Manchester Medical school and was allocated Lancashire Teaching Hospitals for my clinical undergraduate training, first joining the trust in 2006. The supportive and friendly environment allowed me to experience many aspects of medicine and helped me develop my clinical reasoning and understanding of disease management. Since graduation in 2009, I have completed foundation training, core medical training and higher specialty training in Gastroenterology and General internal medicine (with placements in LTH), achieving my certificate for completion of training in August 2019. I was appointed as a consultant at LTH, starting in September 2019 and have taken up an active teaching role, giving back to the undergraduate department who were key to my early development.

Year 3 student feedback: 

“When I need advice on how to complete tasks, people are always willing to help which I really appreciate.”

“Consultants supervising us on all the placements I have had have been excellent in knowing what is required of us and facilitating sessions to allow us to get the required experiences etc.”

“Most junior doctors and consultants are very keen to teach and guide us through the cases we come across in the clinics and on the wards.”

Year 4 student feedback:

Student Quality Ambassador
During my time as an SQA at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust from 2018 to 2020, I went to numerous development days and was nominated and became a finalist for the Nursing Times Award in 2020.

I am now a qualified Major Trauma Nurse at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This would not have been possible if I hadn’t learned about pressure area care from a TVN Specialist, or learnt about the trauma network from attending meetings about improving hospital care.

Being an SQA pushed me to develop my skills in quality improvement.   When I go to interviews I have this on my CV, keeping the message fresh about quality improvement and how I was a part of improving the quality within the Trust.  Now I have qualified I have become a Quality Ambassador and continue to work with the Trust to change practices for the better.
