14th September 2018

Recently, The AHSN (Academic Health Science Networks) Network announced the appointment of Dr Una Adderley to oversee the new National Wound Care Strategy Programme. Dr Adderley took up her position from 1st September and unfortunately has now stepped down from her leadership of the Legs Matter coalition. We all want to say a huge thank you to Una, she has been a major force in the success of the Legs Matter campaign and will be sadly missed. 

Dr Leanne Atkin

We couldn’t be more pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Leanne Atkin as the new Chair of Legs Matter. Leanne has been an invaluable member of the team since its inception and has hit the ground running, heading up the recent strategy meeting in Leeds. Leanne said:

“I am so excited and proud to take over as Chair of the Legs Matter campaign. We are all very sad to see Una leave us, however she has built very solid foundations for us to continue to build on. Thank you from us all. The campaign continues to increase in momentum, and awareness of the importance of lower limb care is growing. I am so honoured to work with this group of amazing individuals, and we all remain enthusiastic about the challenges ahead. We have some amazing plans for 2019  – so keep watching.”
