Chair of Trustees

Jenny Cowpe

Jenny has been a Trustee of St Richard’s since 2000 and a Vice-Chair since 2001. She believes strongly in the benefits which St Richard’s can offer to patients and their families and brings to her role an understanding of both healthcare and academia, based on her career spanning both the NHS and university sectors.

Trained in healthcare management in London, Jenny gained extensive experience of leading health organisations over the next twenty-five years; she then joined the faculty at Keele University, where her work on the design and delivery of Keele’s clinical leadership programmes led to the creation of the Keele Clinical Leadership Academy, which she directed until her formal retirement in 2018. She now works with the Academy on a consultancy basis.

Jenny lives in Malvern with her husband Alan.
