Lucy Holmes Profile
Lucy, 24, was brought up in Essex, and she turned to medicine to help find a cure for her sister's life-threatening disease, Cystic Fibrosis. Ever since her sister was diagnosed, Lucy has been involved in her ongoing care and it was her condition that inspired Lucy to go into medicine.
Dr Holmes' first rotation will be in Gastro. The Gastro ward treats alcoholics and patients with digestive problems, bowel and liver disease. This will be both demanding and emotionally draining for caring Lucy.
When Lucy gets stressed she gets cooking. She can often be found in the kitchen whipping up cakes for everyone and loves throwing dinner parties for her friends. Lucy's also an avid runner. She's run marathons to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis and last year took part in the Great North Run.
