Lancaster medical graduate Sally Ingram is the latest member of her family to pursue a medical career.

Her father Dr Dominic Ingram is a GP and her mother Jane is a nurse practitioner.

Sally said: “Ever since I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a doctor. I looked up to my Dad and I wanted to understand all the talk about health at the dinner table.”

One of seven children, Sally’s elder sister Emily is a doctor, younger sister Sophie is studying pharmacy and middle sister Ruth Biomedical Science while the other siblings are still at school.

The family live in Lancaster where Sally attended  Ripley St Thomas High School and the Sixth Form at Lancaster Girls’ Grammar before going to Lancaster Medical School.

“I’ve enjoyed the course so much because it’s quite small so everyone knows everyone else and it’s very friendly. Medical students also tend to stick together because we spend so long studying together.

“To mark the end of the course, we all went to the Lake District trip for a final farewell and celebrated with a graduation ball.”

Sally now plans to train as a doctor.
