Dr. Jane Pateman
I trained in London and work in Brighton as an anaesthetic consultant. I was a very reluctant companion with two small children on my husband's first Lourdes pilgrimage in 1997, when I unexpectedly found it an amazing and fulfilling experience. (I got roped in to work!) After a few gaps as the children grew, I've been with Arundel and Brighton Diocesan pilgrimage every year since 2008, and was their Chief Doctor from 2015 to 2019.
I have been Chair of the BLMA for the last 3 years, after being nominated by the late Dr Salvo Xerri.
