Reverend Prebendary Professor Georgina Radford (DSc)

Friday 21 July 2023 9:00am

Georgina trained as a doctor at the Royal Free medical School, and has had a long history in public health at local, national and international levels. Prior to her current role, she was Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England, which included advising and liaising with Ministers, key officials, professionals and the public on matters of health and wellbeing. She had a particular interest in health and work, which continues in her current roles as a non-Executive Director of both the Department of Work and Pensions; and Health and Safety Executive. She has been a regular speaker at conferences and with the media.

In 2019 Georgina embarked on a new “career” and is now a Vicar in Devon, looking after villages on the edge of Dartmoor. During the COVID pandemic she advised the Church of England nationally on their response, and in recognition was awarded the The Canterbury Cross for Services to the Church of England by the Archbishop of Canterbury. She also worked with government on specific aspects of its response.

When not working her hobbies include walking (and “running” though that is a rather loose description) with her collie dog, enjoying the wonderful outdoors and reading.
