About this blog and about me



I am a Director of Public Health for Hertfordshire and Honorary Secretary (Membership) for the Association of Directors of Public Health, though this blog is personal and does not claim that any content necessarily reflects the views or policy of Hertfordshire County Council or anyone else for that matter. My LinkedIn profile is here

I have qualifications in Science, Theology, Public Health and Psychology. I am a Chartered Psychologist and Chartered Scientist. I’m either intellectually greedy or insatiably curious, or maybe I just can’t agree to sit in one discipline’s box, but as a result of whichever combination of those, and sheer grim determination.  I have a very strong interest in the Psychology of Leadership, and I try, however inadequately, to put this into practice.

I also edit the Catholics in Healthcare blog and am committed to making equality and diversity a reality.

I hope by doing this blog I can put tools and resources for public health relevant to local authorities and community agencies.  Everything I put on here I have used or read, and everything on this provides tools, perspectives and readings which I’ve found useful and helpful.

Hence, from such intellectual curiosity or indecision, the range of subjects on this blog. My own experience is that this ability to cross-disciplines has enabled me to do some really exciting, and I hope useful, things in my life so far.

Wherever possible I provide links to powerpoints or tools. My assumption is you are more than welcome to use these in any way you find useful. It would be great if you acknowledge the sources.
