The Branch would like to congratulate Jane Wills on her new role as Deputy Facilities Manager – Community for Somerset NHS FT. Jane provides facilities services management across the trust, primarily supporting myself, Anna Warman, as the facilities manager for the community.
Jane started work with the NHS as a Diet Chef at Yeovil District Hospital and within six months was offered promotion to Head Chef at South Petherton Hospital. She held this position from 1989, moving to Crewkerne Hospital in 2009 for 18 months – in the same role – during the rebuild of South Petherton Hospital. Since 2011, Jane has worked as Hotel Services Supervisor at South Petherton Hospital, managing the catering, portering and housekeeping departments, and a team of more than 30 colleagues. Her role has developed over time to incorporate food hygiene training for the community and mental health sites, and to support our facilities leads.
