NAMEM are sorry to announce the death of Judi Sharpe
Judi worked in the NHS for 33 years, she first trained as a medical secretary and worked at Bart’s Hospital and then Primary Care for a short time. She moved to Southend hospital where she was A&E office Manager and in 1993 moved to Postgraduate Medical Education where she worked as MEM until her retirement in 2011.
Judi was East of England NAMEM Representative for many years and had a wide breadth of knowledge and experience which she shared with her regional group at their regular meetings. She was NAMEM secretary for a while and later NAMEM Chair 2003-2005 and for many years she edited NAMEM newsletter.
Judi had an unwavering passion for NAMEM and a great supporter of the NAMEM training programme. She was never afraid of a challenge and was instrumental in organising many conferences and meetings over the years, delivering numerous presentations at various events on behalf of NAMEM Council.
Judi was a lovely lady with a friendly, bubbly personality and an instant smile; she gave helpful advice especially to new members of the Association and continued to keep an interest in Medical Education long after her retirement.
Judi will be very sadly missed by her NAMEM colleagues and we send our sincere condolences to her family.
