Ruth Ingamells Director of Operations

Ruth joins us with 15 years experience as a Regional Director working within the statutory and non-statutory advocacy field in the third sector, and 5 years working within Operations and Contracts Management (NHS outsourcing) for a large private healthcare provider. Since becoming a Lincolnshire resident in 1998, she has been passionate about ensuring those living in rural communities have good access to healthcare and has been part of a number of patient experience groups looking at shaping services that can be available to all.

“I am delighted to work with LRDP to help drive this initiative forward.  North and Greater Lincolnshire continually have unfilled vacancies and there are many refugee Doctors who have the skills to fill some of them, so I am proud to help support putting the two together for the benefit of all concerned”

Simon Behan Deputy Operations Director

Simon has in excess of 12 years working within the healthcare arena, he is a senior manager with significant experience in Resourcing, Human Resources and Operational Management in a career spanning over 30 years.

“ I am privileged to work with an organisation that will make a significant positive influence to the lives of our different communities within North East Lincolnshire and the county of Lincolnshire as a whole”

Emma Riley Programme Administrator

Emma is originally from Cleethorpes in North East Lincolnshire. She completed her degree in French and German before working mainly in book and magazine editing and project management roles in London and Edinburgh. She also lived and worked in France and Germany. In recent years, Emma decided to return to Lincolnshire to raise her family.

'I feel extremely privileged and proud to be involved in this project. I am very much looking forward to seeing the positive results it will bring about - not only for the Refugee Doctors who will be given this opportunity to rebuild their lives, but also for our own area of North East Lincolnshire, which desperately needs more Doctors.'

Carol Hornsey Programme Administrator

Carol comes to the project with a background of over 30 + years NHS experience, which includes clinical roles as a Senior nurse and midwife as well as various senior management roles.  Governance and in particular patient safety has always been her passion as well as ensuring safe local services are shaped by patient experience/involvement.

Following early retirement from the NHS, working in this project supporting refugees to successfully register with the General Medical Council (GMC) and see them go on to work locally as doctors in the NHS, is a true joy. The doctors we support are truly inspirational and their dedication never fails to make me feel so proud of being involved in this wonderful project.

Dr Ajay Chawla Clinical Lead

"It is a great opportunity to be associated with LRDP and work with very committed and talented refugee doctors to help them to integrate and work in the UK system."
