Rachel Power

Chief Executive, The Patients Association

Rachel joined the Patients Association as Chief Executive in June 2017, bringing with her over 20 years’ experience of health and social care in the not-for-profit sector.
Since joining, Rachel has overseen a significant period of change, which has included a significantly increased and engaged membership. Rachel was appointed to the NHS Assembly in 2019.
Rachel is now focused on taking the Patients Association to a new level of patient representation, with the launch of a five-year strategy focused building true partnerships with patients throughout health and care services. The strategy answers the challenge of rebuilding health and care following the pandemic and overcoming many long-running problems for patients about not being listened to and services that meet their needs.
