Hospitals charity names pharma chief as next chair

The Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity has appointed Jennifer Winter as its next chair.

Winter is currently chief executive of veterinary and pharma company Animalcare Group and has also been a vice president of pharma giants AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline.

She takes over next month from Richard Hunting, who is stepping down following the end of his ten-year term.

The charity supports the work carried out by the two hospitals, which are based in Chelsea and Harefield and specialise in cardio-respiratory care.

“I am excited to be joining the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity as the Chair of Trustees,” said Winter.

“I am passionate about healthcare and am looking forward to working with the team to help to improve the lives of those who are impacted by heart and lung disease.”

Her priorities include supporting the charities latest appeals to help the hospital’s genetics and genomics team and caring for young patients.

The charity’s chief executive Richard Bowyer added: “Everyone at the Charity is excited to have Jennifer aboard as we embark on the next ambitious phase of our journey to improve the treatment of heart and lung patients.

“Jennifer has a huge amount of experience in the healthcare industry and her expertise will be immensely valuable to the Charity. I am very much looking forward to working with her.”
