Professor Ingrid Wolfe

    July 8, 2024

    Professor Ingrid Wolfe is Director for the Institute of Women and Children’s Health, Director of the Children and Young People’s Health Partnership in Lambeth and Southwark. She is currently Principle Investigator on two large clinical and population health programmes, including the implementation at scale of a health system strengthening initiative and new model of children’s health care, and its evaluation by cluster-randomised control trial; a policy research programme about overcoming adverse childhood conditions; and Child Health Theme Lead for NIHR ARC (applied research programme) South London working to improve outcomes for children with complex conditions and social vulnerabilities. She is co-Chair of the British Association for Child and Adolescent Public Health. Ingrid is qualified in paediatrics and public health, which enables 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 work to improve children’s health care and health systems.
    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.
