Barbara Hibbert

Patient voice sharing lived experience
Barbara Hibbert is a stage 4 bowel cancer patient. First diagnosed in September 2014 and put on a curative pathway, she is now inoperable and incurable. Palliative chemo, however, is working well and she is outliving the prognosis she received on reoccurrence in October 2016. She was a teacher of history and politics for over 30 years, before leaving the classroom to undertake a ‘portfolio’ career in examining, training and resource writing. On receiving her prognosis in 2016 she gave up much of her work, but is currently picking up new projects as she continues to be well, and has realised that she enjoys working more than watching daytime TV. She is also involved with various cancer projects, including being a member of the BCI-UK PPG and is involved with UseMyData. Although she is by no means a data expert, she is learning more about its role in evidence-based medicine all the time!

Head of Regional Health Partnerships
Leeds City Council
Rachael Loftus is the Head of Regional Health Partnerships and works to help local government engage and influence the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership. She aims to maximise the impact that the 8 participating local authorities can have – as commissioners and deliverers of social care, as those responsible for many of the factors that ensure healthy environments: decent housing, access to green space, licensing, planning and the kind of inclusive growth that expands employment and opportunity; and as democratically-elected place leaders with a responsibility to all the residents of a place, not just those who use services.

Rachael’s background is in community policy and she has a substantial track record in bringing together innovative community, public and private partnerships to tackle issues of shared importance. Most recently, she worked as one of the UK’s first ever Chief Service Officers – supported by the US Cities of Service, Nesta, Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Cabinet Office. This successful pioneering programme was about transforming public services to create the right opportunities and support for citizens to make a measurable impact on the issues they care about.

Prior to that she worked to develop the Leeds Poverty Truth Commission, the Leeds Migration Partnership and brought together the city’s approach to harmonious communities. She has also worked internationally on a range of issues, including advocating for the rights of travelling football fans, developing intercultural approaches and community relations.

Rachael is the Chair of Leeds Irish Health and Homes and on the board of Together for Peace. In her spare time she follows the ups and downs of Leeds United and dabbles in photography, creative writing and singing.
