Dr Rosie Loftus
Rosie Loftus trained at Birmingham University and has been a GP Principal in Kent since 1989. She worked as a Clinical Assistant at the Heart of Kent Hospice for a number of years and has been a Macmillan GP since 2001. She became Macmillan GP Adviser to the London, Anglia and South East Region in July 2002 and was Macmillan’s Lead GP Adviser from 2003-2013. She was appointed Macmillan’s Joint Chief Medical Officer (CMO) in 2014, a role she shared with Professor Jane Maher, reflecting the need for specialists and generalists to work together more effectively. Rosie is now Macmillan’s sole CMO after Jane stepped down from the role in December 2018. As CMO, Rosie advises on medical strategy and leads a cross sector community of 200 Macmillan GPs, together with Consultant Advisors. She is also a member of the National Cancer Transformation Board.
