Esther joined the ILC in November 2022 as Senior Health Policy Lead.
Before this she worked with a team of palliative healthcare researchers at the Cicely Saunders Institute of Palliative Care, Policy and Rehabilitation alongside her MA in Public Policy at King’s College London. In this role she supported the delivery of research projects into various aspects of palliative care and rehabilitation, and she greatly enjoyed working with researchers and patient involvement groups. This is how she became interested in questions of longevity and good health at all stages of life, and the policy interventions that could support these objectives.
Esther’s areas of interest include mental health, immunisation, ageism in healthcare, and women’s experiences of their health at different stages of their lives.
