Bev Proctor, acting chief executive of the Independent Care Group (ICG), has become a COVID-19 vaccine volunteer to help tackle the pandemic.
The ICG CEO (pictured) will be providing the vaccine from a GP surgery in her home town of York.
Proctor said: “Given the need to get the vaccine out quickly, particularly to vulnerable groups, it felt like the least I could do to contribute.
“It is so important to get the vaccine administered across the country and I’m happy to do what I can to help.”
Mike Padgham, Chair of the ICG, said he was proud of Bev’s decision.
“This is typical of Bev, who is a very selfless and generous person, to give up her time to support the vaccination programme,” he added.
“And as a Registered Nurse, anyone getting the vaccine from Bev will be in very good hands.”
Proctor joined the ICG as its operations director in 2018 and has since become acting chief executive. Prior to that her career had been predominantly in healthcare.
