Jill Fraser is Chief Executive and Co-founder of the healthcare charity, Kissing it Better .
She trained at the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing at St Thomas’ Hospital in London and during her training was awarded a scholarship by The Kings Fund to work in America.
The experience gave her an interest in medical journalism and, before starting Kissing it Better, for 25 years she presented health features for many programmes on television and radio including Woman’s Hour, Newsround and Breakfast Time for the BBC.
Kissing it Better has won The Nursing Times Care of Older People award, and in March this year, Jill won the ‘Outstanding Contribution Award’ at The Patient Experience Network National Awards.
As well as regular visits to hospitals and care homes as part of Kissing it Better, Jill speaks at conferences across the country and writes articles for national newspapers and magazines.
