Louise joins us with a strong background in health communications, social policy and local services. For the past five years, Louise has been Director of Communications and Influencing at the Centre for Ageing Better.  

She has previously held senior leadership roles at Diabetes UK and Lambeth Council, and has also worked as a media specialist at Which? Magazine, the Food Standards Agency, and the Health Education Authority. 

Louise is looking forward to meeting you and leading our vital work at a national and local level.

Commenting on her first day, Louise said:  

“I feel privileged to have this role. I am passionate about and committed to ensuring that those who are most disadvantaged are heard across every level of health and care.  

“Our unique position to listen and champion people’s voices is more important than ever as health and care services recover from the pandemic and start to tackle the health inequalities that COVID-19 has starkly highlighted.

“I look forward to working with you and partners across the sector to plot a course towards a better future.”
