Jo Fitzpatrick

Deputy Senior Responsible Officer for the Big Conversation

I have a background as a Chief Pharmacist for the NHS in Wakefield for over 20 years and then heading up the delivery of the Covid vaccination programme. Through this work I have seen the benefits of really listening to people and holding conversations in the right way to discover what people value and love about where they live.

This is why I am now involved in overseeing the delivery the Big Conversation from being part of creating the vision to helping everyone feel supported every step of the way, right through to what happens after the conversations take place

And my best way to spend a Saturday is to have a relaxed coffee in bed, a mooch out for some brunch somewhere followed by a walk; then a good film, great food, and some delicious wine and a cocktail or two with my loved ones in the evening.
