Ingrid Wolfe is Director of the Children and Young People’s Health Partnership in Lambeth and Southwark. She is a Consultant in Child Public Health at Evelina London Children’s Healthcare and Clinical Senior Lecturer in Child Public Health at Kings College London. She is Co-Chair of the British Association for Child and Adolescent Public Health.
Ingrid is qualified in paediatrics and public health, which has enabled her to be a children’s doctor in a very broad sense of the term. She has on-the-ground insight from clinical practice, and a population perspective from public health. These two aspects come together in her academic work, which focuses on children’s health services, systems, and policy in the UK and European countries, and in her NHS work where she is leading the development and evaluation of a new model of children’s health care in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark.
Ingrid’s goal is to improve UK child health through strengthening and applying science in children’s health services, systems, and policy, so she publishes and speaks widely on these subjects. She was awarded an OBE for services to children’s health in 2016.
