Introducing our new APM Treasurer Natasha Wiggins
Natasha took up her post at the beginning of October 2022. Natasha is a Palliative Medicine consultant at Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
She has a very impressive leadership portfolio including chairing the EOL guidelines and medicines group for the Integrated Care Board covering 1 million population and leading on their Digital EOL group; chairing the regional Palliative Partnership Working group, and leading an education programme for paramedics across the South West of England.
In her Trust she has built a palliative care team from scratch, established and chairs the trust clinical ethics committee and created and maintained a healthy departmental budget and charitable funds.
Natasha replaces Derek Willis who has been a star in the role, supporting membership to grow by measures such as including access to the Palliative Care Formulary for many members. We have every expectation that Natasha will shine as our APM Treasurer. Thankfully the APM finances are in a better place than the governments and the handover should be less bumpy than for Kwasi to Jeremy.
Natasha lives in the UK’s first eco village in Oxfordshire with her husband and children aged 5 and 2.
Natasha says “I am really looking forward to taking this role on – yes there are big shoes to fill but also an opportunity for fresh eyes and new ideas. Thank you to Derek for such a stellar job and your patience with my many questions”
