Professor Public Health and Policy


Personal Statement

I qualified from Newcastle University and subsequently trained in clinical medicine (general, respiratory and cardiovascular) in Cardiff, Oxford and then in Edinburgh where I discovered Public Health. I moved to Glasgow University before being appointed as the first Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Liverpool in 1999.

Administrative Roles

  • I am valued as a public health “generalist”, with expertise that spans the clinical, health service, population and policy aspects of health and disease, notably around preventing non-communicable diseases.
  • I contribute to policy development and service work locally, nationally and internationally, including recently chairing, vice-chairing or energetically supporting committees at the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, the British Heart Foundation, the European Society of Cardiology, Heart of Mersey, the UK Faculty of Public Health, the UK Health Forum, NICE, and the World Health Organisation
