Wayne says ‘goodbye’ to Concord

Monday July 31, 2017

A man who graduated as a doctor just days ago has said ‘goodbye’ to Concord on taking up a new post in the NHS. Dr. Wayne Fradley, 33, first started at Concord College summer schools in 2006 in the sports team and has gone on to become course director having completed 10 years’ service. He has risen from summer school sports coach to head of sport and assistant course director before his appointment as course director in 2014. This summer he could only complete one of the schools as he begins his new medical career on the wards and in A&E at an NHS hospital in South Yorkshire on July 29. He has completed a four year graduate entry medicine course at the University of Nottingham and becomes a foundation year one doctor.  On completion of his second year he will undertake speciality training with the ambition of becoming a surgeon. Of his time at Acton Burnell-based Concord College, Wayne said:  “I was here almost every summer through my 20’s and it has always felt like coming ‘home’ for the summer.  I consider many of my colleagues at Concord College as a second family and we will continue to keep in touch.” He first met Concord College’s Summer Schools manager, Kari Butler, as 18 year olds studying sports and exercise science at Loughborough University in 2002.
