Juliet Bouverie has been Chief Executive of the Stroke Association since June 2016
The Stroke Association is the UK’s leading stroke charity promoting life after stroke. With a turnover of £35 million per year and a staff team of 800, the organisation’s activities extend from funding stroke research, to providing services to stroke survivors and their families, influencing and campaigning for change, and educating and working to prevent strokes. There are 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK, yet stroke still remains the fourth single largest cause of death in the UK and second in the world.
Juliet co-chairs the Stroke Delivery Programme Board with NHS England and is an NHS Assembly member. She is a World Stroke Organisation Board member and Fellow. She recently ran the London Marathon for the Stroke Association on 28 April 2019.
Prior to joining the Stroke Association, Juliet was at Macmillan Cancer Support for 16 years in a range of roles covering strategy, policy, research and HR. From 2011 – 2015 she was Executive Director of Services and Influencing with a staff team of 800 and a budget of £150 million. She oversaw a programme of award-winning innovations and service design across the UK, and secured important government commitments to improve patient experience and post-treatment support through the 2015 Cancer Strategy for England.
Prior to Macmillan, Juliet worked at the British Red Cross in strategy and service evaluation, the Community Development Foundation in fundraising, and a political consultancy. She was a trustee of the Long-Term Conditions Alliance and chaired the Cancer Patient Experience Board for University College London Hospital (UCLH) from 2011 – 2014.
Juliet has a degree in Modern Languages in Oxford and a postgraduate diploma in management.
