I am a GP and public health doctor from Cambridge, U.K. I work independently to protect and improve health by providing general practice and public health services, and by supporting action to address climate change and promote sustainable development.  I am motivated by the desire to create a better, healthier, fairer world for everyone.

What I Do

  • Climate change and sustainability leadership: I provide expert consultancy on strategic leadership and network development related to climate change, sustainability and health.
  • General practice and public health: I offer a range of services including facilitation of senior teams, sustainability consultancy and public health specialist support. I plan  to offer locum GP services from late 2017.
  • Cambridge climate action projects:  I work with local partners in Cambridge, U.K to develop Cambridge as a world leading city for action on climate change.
  • Writing: I share ideas on climate change, health and related issues via my blog and with occasional publications.

How do you change a city to become zero carbon? How do you win a bike race? These two questions on the face of it have little in common. In early February I attended a talk in Cambridge by Dave Brailsford about how the cycling teams he has run have become among the most successful ever.
