Sad to say goodbye to National User Group Chair
In February the NHS ESR Central Team said a sad goodbye to Chris Heward, who has been National User Group chair since 2009. Chris is retiring in May, so has stepped down from the role he has held for the past ten years. At the recent joint National SIG event Paul Spooner, ESR Programme Director, took the opportunity to thank Chris for his support and championship of ESR for so many years.
As Paul commented, the success of ESR has relied on a close working relationship and collaboration with users of the service. Chris has led by example during his stewardship as Chair of the National User Group.
An informal farewell and retirement celebration followed the meeting and glasses were raised to help Chris celebrate his forthcoming retirement.
