Jane said, “I’m very sad to be leaving Endometriosis UK after a challenging but exciting and fulfilling year and a half. It has been an absolute joy and privilege for me to work with such an inspiring and passionate community and I know the charity will continue to go from strength to strength. I wish everyone at the charity all the very best for the future.”

Chair Angela Style said "Jane has achieved a huge amount for the charity and for women with endometriosis in her time as Chief Executive. Jane's legacy includes the Empowering Women strategy to 2019, the new advocacy service, the achievement of NHS England Information Standard certification and a shift in public awareness and understanding of endometriosis through her work with The Guardian in the Autumn. The whole board joins me in thanking Jane for her contributions and wishing her well for the future."

Jane will continue to serve on the NICE Endometriosis Guideline Committee as an individual lay member. 

Recruitment for a permanent Chief Executive is underway, with advertising to begin before end January 2016.  An interim Chief Executive will be appointed to ensure the continued effectiveness of the charity and support the staff team while recruitment for a permanent Chief Executive takes place.
