Rebecca Lemin: Network Manager (BAHons, MSc, PGCHE)
I have been working in public sector organisations both nationally and locally for the last 20 years. I started my career working as a researcher in health policy for a major political party with responsibility for contributing to the production of the health manifesto for the 2001 general election.
I soon after moved to an Inner London Mental Health Trust where I managed their research programme, and then onto South Gloucestershire Local Authority as a project manager managing large scale service reviews and driving forwards continuous improvement initiatives relating to adult social care services.
From 2006-2013, I worked as a Senior Consultant for the Institute of Public Care at Oxford Brookes University. During my time there I worked on and managed a number of direct consultancy and applied research projects across adults and children’s services. In particular I built up considerable expertise specifically within social housing and the adult care sector, and was responsible for producing a number of strategic documents on behalf of the Department of Health on the delivery of supportive housing for the ageing population. During my time at IPC I built up a breadth of experience as a lead tutor and trainer on a number of the Universities postgraduate certificated courses and training programmes. These included delivering programmes on strategic management and change and commissioning public care services to senior health and social care professionals from across the UK.
I took up post as Network Manager in 2013. I hope to utilise and build upon my professional background and draw upon personal experience of neonatal services to bring strong and positive strategic and managerial leadership to the South West Neonatal Network. I am passionate and committed to breaking down barriers across the NHS, allied health services and commissioning’s organisations, to enable us to work collaboratively across the network to deliver high quality and equitable neonatal services to parents and their babies across the region.
