Operations Team

Angela Foulston 
Chief Executive, YORLMC Ltd

Angela is responsible for forward planning and coordinating the development of YORLMC.

As Chief Executive, Angela is the Senior Officer of YORLMC Ltd, and works alongside the Senior Clinical Officer, the Medical Secretary.  A key aspect of Angela’s role is leadership and coordination of YORLMC’s Operations Team, which is responsible for the administration of all aspects of YORLMC business. 

She is responsible for ensuring the work carried out by YORLMC Ltd is appropriately resourced and in recent years Angela has secured significant funds predominantly by bidding for grants from NHSE.
