Doris-Ann Williams has retired from her role as Chief Executive at BIVDA, after almost 22 years. Doris-Ann said, “I have been privileged to do a job I have loved representing the industry I am passionate about. It has been wonderful to see the value of diagnostics and laboratory medicine increase in profile in UK healthcare during the last 20 years, although there is still more to be done. I am now looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life and wish BIVDA continued success in the future as the representative association for the sector.”
