Currently working as Director of Contractor services for Community Pharmacy Wales.

When asked what attracted her to apply for the post Judy explained

“For six months during 2023 I stepped up to the role of Acting Chief Executive at CPW, this was a role I very much enjoyed, having worked as deputy to the Chief Executive for 7 years previously.”
