HARLOW New Town had the first health centre in the country and ever since, the facilities have been under the stewardship of the Harlow Health Centres Trust. The Trust is not-for-profit and in recent years has given over £2.1 million in grants and donations to local organisations and causes.
For the last 28 years the Trust has been managed by CEO Carol Sizeland, who will shortly be retiring.
Carol had led the Trust through a major redevelopment programme of each surgery, culminating most recently in the new Lister House building. She has been a true steward of Harlow’s health centres.
That’s why, on a recent visit to Harlow the Health Secretary, Sajid Javid, paid personal tribute to Carol.
He said “Twenty-eight years is an extremely long time, particularly to be responsible for the health centres Harlow people rely on. You have done an amazing job and deserve your retirement. Harlow owes you a debt of gratitude for what you have done and I have no doubt you will be sorely missed.”
It is true to say that the health centre facilities are some of the best in the country and that is, in large part down to the 28 years service Carol Sizeland has given.
“On behalf of all Harlow residents, thank you”.
Carol has been an outstanding ambassador for Harlow. Her outstanding skill and knowledge has help change the landscape of community health facilities. It’s was a huge pleasure and honour to work along side her on regeneration opportunities. A lovely person who will be missed by many. Thank you for what you gave to Harlow
