Healthcare is going through a number of changes at the moment, so having Jodie and Karl to help shape how ProCare responds is going to be exciting challenge.”
“I would also like to acknowledge the other candidates who dedicated their time and effort to putting themselves forward for the Co-operative Board. We were fortunate to have a very high standard of applicants, so I have no doubt that these people will continue to have a positive impact in their work.”
