Jolynne is our first shadow trustee – a role designed to support people into the full role as a trustee.

She joins us with a wealth of experience in patient advocacy borne out of a passion to ensure the patient voice, needs and experiences are central to achieving positive health outcomes. She is currently leading patient engagement in digital therapeutics at Ampersand Health, a social-impact focused company specialising in supporting people living with chronic inflammatory conditions through digital means.

Prior to this, Jolynne worked at Real Chemistry, a global health communications agency, in their International Advocacy Relations team counselling Pharmaceutical and Biotech clients with their patient advocacy strategies. She also previously worked in the charity sector at Prostate Cancer UK leading their programme of work for men at higher risk of prostate cancer and delivering health inequalities community engagement initiatives.
