Data from Leading People 2016 report, published on 24/02/16 by the Sutton Trust.

61% of medics have been privately educated compared to 7% of the UK population as a whole, according to a report published today by the Sutton Trust. The Mullany e-Mentoring project is striving to tackle this disappointing lack of social mobility by providing mentors for the state-educated young people of Swansea and Neath Port Talbot. The support and guidance our mentors provide help our mentees to have the best possible chance of successfully applying to medical school, and other life science professions, so that together we can challenge these statistics!
