“Her experience and strategic knowledge will bring a fresh perspective as we continue to innovate to provide the best care we can for our patients and communities.”

Dr Lemer said: “I’m so delighted to be joining BWC - a wonderful organisation whose values and way of caring for patients and families I have come to admire and respect over my years in the NHS.”
