David McGregor

Nominated for Paediatric Consultant Hero

Works at Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust

“David has put his heart and soul into overseeing the training of the junior doctors as college tutor. He is always available to support trainees and is constantly finding new ways in which to improve the training programmes. He has driven the agenda for teaching within Exeter which has led to consistent feedback and a place that many trainees wish to come to or return to due to the reputation he has created about the nurture culture for trainees.
He is a fantastic consultant who manages patients on the neonatal unit with care and attention as well as co-leading the diabetes service within Exeter. He does all of this with a very humble approach to life

Dr McGregor gives excellent support for trainees and really cares about their welfare. He is extremely enthusiastic about teaching and is always helping with junior teaching sessions and SIM. He provides excellent clinical care and does the upmost for children and their family.

I worked with Dave when we were caring for a very unwell patient. Dave was so kind and caring with the parents and extended family. He was concerned about the nursing staff looking after the baby and went out of his way to see that we were all ok. I know the family really appreciated the time Dave gave them within this process.”
