Ceinwen Giles

Ceinwen has worked for a large number of international charities and agencies including the United Nations, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the International Planned Parenthood Federation. In 2010 Ceinwen was diagnosed with stage 4B non-Hodgkin lymphoma and spent six months undergoing treatment in hospital. Now in remission, she still receives regular treatment for conditions arising from her cancer treatment.In 2012, Ceinwen was awarded a Clore Social Leadership Fellowship, which is given to ambitious and influential individuals pioneering social change. The fellowship enables Ceinwen to access leadership development and mentoring support while contributing to the development of Shine Cancer Support, a charity which supports adults in their 20s, 30s, and 40s who are affected by cancer and for which she is a trustee. Ceinwen is also a trustee of the Point of Care Foundation, a new charity devoted to improving the culture of health and care organisations.

Declaration of competing interests

I have received fees for consulting from GlaxoSmithKline UK. I'm a Trustee of Shine Cancer Support and the Point of Care Foundation. My speaking engagements have had travel reimbursed (but no other fees paid) by a number of organisations: King's Fund, Macmillan, Lymphoma Association, NHS Employers, NHS Confederation. None of these interests should cause a problem as far as I can see.
