Jenny Cooke

Occupation: Director of Population Health Planning

As a graduate of the University of Leeds Jenny returned to work in the city in early 2021 to take up the role of Director of Population Health Planning. Prior to this Jenny held a range of roles in NHS organisations in Surrey, Sussex and London covering areas such as Integrated Care, Primary Care and Urgent Care. Most recently Jenny was the Programme Director for the East London Foundation’s Trust community mental health transformation programme, pioneering new models of care for people with serious mental illness.

Jenny has a MSc in Healthcare Leadership and is a qualified Improvement Coach. Jenny’s professional interests are in understanding how health and care systems can harness improvement science to make an impact on population health, as well involving service users and citizens in how we undertake system re-design.

Outside of work Jenny enjoys cycling, running, and hiking – anything that gets her outdoors and active, but balances this with a  love for cooking and baking.
