I took over from Emma to cover her maternity leave, so will be around until January 2020. I am a respiratory registrar. I am enjoying strengthening the JDB and raising its profile during my time as Chief Registrar. Outside of work I enjoy the outdoors and I am a slow, but hopefully improving amateur runner!
I am an Elderly and GIM ST7 at LTHT and the new Chief Registrar taking over from Katy. I will be chairing the JDB and very much looking forward to working with the team to continue the great work of the JDB.
Jo was a Clinical Leadership Fellow working on QI projects within LTHT, also helping to run the JDB. She has now started as a Rehabilitation Medicine registrar.

Shefali is a Clinical Oncology Registrar and is currently working as a Clinical Leadership Fellow in Medical Education and Digitalisation. Her interests include postgraduate education, quality improvement and healthcare services. She occasionally tweets @shefali_parikh.
She delights in the printed word and all things yellow. She’ll be good friends with anyone who has a dog or loves board games.
Dave has now left the JDB to become a consultant here at Leeds, but this is what he said of the JDB: “I am an ST3 in radiology, currently undergoing sub-specialty training in diagnostic neuroradiology. Prior to this I completed basic surgical training and a couple of years as a research vascular surgical registrar.
My main interest lies with teaching, but over the past few years I have become increasingly interested in management and the concept of quality improvement.
My aim through my role with the JDB is to combine those interests and be a part of creating a greater post-graduate mentoring platform whilst also improving my own knowledge and skill base for on-going QI projects within my own directorate.”
