president - Chloe Mcgrath

Hi everyone! I’m Chloe and I’m so excited to be your LMSS President 2021/22!
The LMSS is the oldest and largest medical school society in the UK. Each year we put on a huge range of amazing events from annual dinners and balls to charity hikes that we hope everyone can get involved in!
For anyone that doesn’t know me, I am going into my 5th and final year, which is a bit scary as I still feel like I’m in 2nd year. My role as President is to be the spokesperson of the society and to work closely with my fellow officers Oscar and Charlie to make sure our committee is supported, and the society can offer something to all students in the medical school.
This year, I have a few priorities I hope to achieve along the way. I want to make sure that the LMSS is a safe space for all students and somewhere you all feel appreciated and recognised! I also want to ensure that we use the societies amazing platform to raise awareness about mental health and wellbeing with a focus on reducing stigmas and looking after ourselves.


Please feel free to message me on facebook or drop an email to president@lmssonline.co. uk if you have any questions, even if it is just for a chat with a friendly face!

Secretary - Oscar edginton

Hello everyone! My name is Oscar, and I am the LMSS Secretary for 2021/22.
I will be returning to my final year of medicine after finishing my Masters of Research this summer. My job for the coming year is to make sure the society is running smoothly and that all the brilliant events run to plan. Chloe, Charlie and I want to bounce back strong after COVID, so you can expect new events as well as our newly elected committee organising more of the events you know and love. We really hope that we can take the society to the next level, offering something for everyone.
The main role of the secretary is to keep everything ticking over. This includes helping organise events, taking minutes at meetings and liaising with the wonderful trustees. All the things behind the scenes, really. I have my fingers crossed that by September, life will feel a bit more normal. I hope to see many of you, including the new first-year students, in the coming months. If anyone has any questions, ideas or just wants a general chat, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or worries you have at secretary@lmssonline.co.uk or on Facebook.

treasurer - charlie hextall

Hi all, I’m Charlie, the LMSS treasurer for 2020-21. This is my second term as Treasurer!

My main job is to look after the society’s finances, which means I have to sort through all the societies expenses and make sure that we have enough money to put on the great events you either already know about or will come to love! Alongside this, I’ll be working closely with Oscar and Chloe to make sure that all the society events run smoothly and everyone on committee is well looked after! I’ve previously been Charity Rep, Webmaster and Treasurer so I have a great understanding of all the fab things this society does, and I can’t wait for you to all enjoy it! I’m in my final year next year, so if you see me around make sure to say hello!
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me on facebook, instagram or email me treasurer@lmssonline.co.uk

Hi everyone!!
We are Peter and Emily, and we are delighted to be your Annual Ball Reps for 2021/22! We are both about to finish intercalation and will be in final year in September.

I’m Emily, from Liverpool, and I enjoy cooking for friends and family, going for ice cream on Lark Lane and I love a good pinterest project, whether it involves whipping out my trusty power tools for pallet furniture, or making beaded bracelets and necklaces. I am so excited for all the planning that is to come and cannot wait to see everyone on the night!!
I’m Peter, from Belfast, and I have previously acted as 4th Year Rep. I’ve played hockey and handball throughout my time at uni and I’ve also attempted to dance at LMSS Charity Strictly- after confessing to being a super fan of the show! This year I’d love to see as many people get involved in the LMSS as possible and feel like the society is their own. I can’t wait to meet everyone, and get in touch if you have any Qs.

Hi everyone!! My name is Kieren and I am your LMSS Sports Secretary for 2021/2022!!

Considering the tragic year we have all experienced, the returning of sports has been a welcome sight to all those involved. Even if you have never played a sport before or you want to try a new one, I encourage everyone to do so as it will not only help you physically but mentally. It’s a great way to meet new people with similar interests from every year. Each club has their own great socials throughout the year and this year we plan on continuing the annual Medics vs Dentists vs Vets Sports Day as well as our themed LMSS sports team bar crawl!!

The LMSS offers a wide range of sports to suit everyone so if you fancy getting involved, send me a message on Facebook or an email and I can point you in the right direction!!
