This month we are saying farewell to Mrs Jane Betts, our valued Director of Primary Care Strategy for North Central, North West and South West London. Jane, a health visitor by training, joined Londonwide LMCs from the NHS in 2010, where she initially commenced her role covering North Central and South East London, and has supported our LMCs and colleagues on the ground through the myriad of changes we have all experienced over the past decade.
Jane will be retiring from health service related work, although she will continue to help society as a magistrate, as well as looking after her family and her horses. We’ll all miss her calm voice of reason, wise counsel and good humour in the Londonwide family, and wish her every happiness for the future.
At the same time, we also say goodbye to Dr Julie Sharman, who joined us as Medical Director from her practice in North East London in 2012. Julie has supported GPs, practices and our LMCs in North Central, North East and South East London in the first half of her nine years with us, and then worked within our GP support team supporting our individual doctors in difficulty. Julie’s knowledge, friendly approach and good humour will be greatly missed we would all like to wish her every happiness in retirement.
