New vice president for the London Academy

Janet Lynch has joined the London Academy to work alongside the two new deputy vice presidents Rachel Patterson and Craig de Sousa plus the interim Development Director, Rachael Tyler (nee Moench).
 
She said: “I’ve been Director of Workforce and Education for Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust for nearly three years. My role is of course extremely busy and has many challenges, but I’m keen to become more involved in professional activities and leadership outside of the Trust and the London HPMA role provides that opportunity. 
 
“I’ve worked in NHS HR for almost 30 years, so I can demonstrate considerable commitment which I hope I can use to benefit the HPMA and the impact people management makes to patients. My own career has hugely benefitted from professional development, networking and support, and through this role I’d hope to be able to continue to do the same for others.”
