Everyone in our team plays an important role in helping to build the foundations of a healthier society.
Jen joined the Programmes team in January 2020. Jen leads on our preventative health strand in the multiple long-term conditions programme, focused on how we enable working-age people to be supported with their health as early and preventatively as possible. Jen also looks at how we can better integrate a focus on the social determinants of health, such as financial health, housing and employment into healthcare settings.
Jen has spent 10 years in the NHS working in a range of different roles, including commissioning and programme management. Most recently she worked for East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT) as an Improvement Advisor, where she supported staff and service users to address complex issues undermining quality of care. This included successfully reducing violence on inpatient units by 66%. Jen also supported ELFT’s first cohort of projects to focus on improving population health and quality of life, through considering the wider determinants of health and working with broader partners in the community.
