Dr Charlotte Augst is the Chief Executive of National Voices. She came to London in 1997, after completing a law degree in Germany, to pursue postgraduate studies at the University of London. She holds a PhD in law and medical ethics. Charlotte has held senior positions in health and research policy – in Parliament, for national regulators, and in the charitable sector.
Since starting at National Voices, Charlotte has led a strategic reorientation of the organisation towards a more visible role for its members –their insight, practice and innovations –and towards grounding National Voices’ influencing work more explicitly in the experience of people who live with ill health, disability or impairment.
