We’re delighted to welcome Esther Wroughton as Care Director to our team who will help build our reputation as a leader in blood cancer support by identifying new support services and developing existing ones to blood cancer patients and their loved ones.

Esther Wroughton, from Bromsgrove, has 17 years experience within the healthcare and dental sector. She joins Leukaemia CARE from NHS Direct where her last role saw her managing a 25-strong team of senior nurse advisors, triaging and signposting patients to in and out of hours services nationally.

She also has significant experience working on the front line of a 24/7 patient assessment line, as well as the new 111 service.

Esther’s role at Leukaemia CARE will bring a strategic vision to our Care Team and the support services we offer to people affected by blood cancer. It will also include developing relationships with haematology clinical nurse specialists and hospitals, ensuring the effective running of our 24-hour Care Line and rolling out the new strategy for support groups and our other support services.

Speaking about her appointment, Esther says: “I am thrilled to be joining Leukaemia CARE at a time when there are some very exciting things in the pipeline. I strongly believe that whether you are a patient or a carer, newly diagnosed or undergoing treatment, access to support and credible information is paramount.

“I am passionate about raising awareness about what Leukaemia CARE does, developing our support services and ultimately being there to support anyone affected by a blood cancer diagnosis.”
