Chief Executive

Esther joined the charity in 2020 bringing a wide range of experience from 15 years of working in the charity sector, including 10 years in the hospice sector where she was successful in implementing new income streams and introducing a range of regular giving programs.  

Esther is leading the charity’s vision of working in partnership across the city of Leeds to tackle health inequalities, support Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust to continue to lead the way with health innovation technology and support the hospitals in caring for patients with rare diseases.

Esther is passionate about enabling the support, donations and Gifts in Wills received by the charity to have an immediate impact across the hospitals, beyond what the NHS can fund, to improve the patient experience. 

She is inspired every day by the dedicated staff in the hospital and in the charity who are committed to doing their best for patients and their families.
