Lizzie Blundell (nee Smith)

My background is in health service management, with a focus on healthcare improvement and implementing new models of care. I started my career through the NHS Graduate Management Scheme and subsequently worked across a number of clinical specialities.

Before starting Public Health Training in 2018, I managed a programme of work to upscale testing and treatment for hepatitis C across South London hospitals, prisons and substance abuse services, in support of the World Health Organisation goals for elimination of viral hepatitis.

I have recently completed the MSc in Global Health Science & Epidemiology at the University of Oxford and am currently on placement at Bracknell Forest Council. In the future I hope to pursue interests in the wider determinants of health and improving health in vulnerable populations.
