Regional Sustainability and Engagement Lead, NHS England - East of England
I have spent many years developing partnerships and networks to support transformational change particularly amongst Small Medium Enterprises. I left my role as Chief Operating Officer at Cambridgeshire's Chamber of Commerce in June 2019 and took up a post in Public Health England to lead the ‘green impact project' in Dentistry. I was a Dental Sustainability Fellow for a year and have since then continued to retain a keen interest in dentistry. Currently, I work in the NHS supporting Integrated Cares Systems in the East of England to deliver their Green plans (embedding Net Zero and social value into our decision making, behaviours and values). My main focus is working with colleagues from Integrated Care Boards and Trusts, but I am also keen to support Primary Care colleagues to 'go green' and in particular, supporting the dental sector to also make the shift towards sustainable healthcare.
