Introduction to our new Vice President of London HPMA - Janet Lynch
‘I’ve been Director of Workforce and Education for Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust for nearly three years, having been appointed just prior to the Trust’s establishment in October 2013. 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 would provide that opportunity. I’ve worked in NHS HR for almost 30 years, so I can demonstrate considerable commitment to the NHS which I hope I can use to benefit the HPMA and the impact people management makes to patients. I’ve always actively supported development in my own HR teams and am delighted to have helped and influenced many of my previous deputies or team members into director and other senior roles in the NHS. I like to think that I’m a team player (my personal passion for a number of sports is probably to thank or blame for this!) and value integrity, fairness and kindness at work. I’m not naturally an extrovert and believe in the effectiveness of the introverted leader, but I’ve also learnt during my career to use other styles when necessary!
I’m very much looking forward to working with the HPMA London network and meeting many of you at some of our events.
