TPP was set-up in 2019 by medical
students at the University of Nottingham as a way to combat the growing staff
crisis within the NHS and support marginalised refugee communities in
Nottingham. After getting an overwhelmingly positive response from our first
cohort of participants the ambition of the organisation has grown and in order
to support more participants we registered as a charity in 2020 and began
expansion to other medical schools, starting with the University of Leeds.
There are 33 medical schools in the UK, with over 40,000 medical students between them. We believe this is a largely untapped resource and one that could be of huge benefit to the displaced medical community. The Phoenix Project
utilises students’ expertise in medical education and the resources they have access to to provide English Language teaching sessions for the displaced doctors.
