I wish to apply for the position of International Special Interest Group representative on the Assembly of Representatives. I am a Voting Member of the CIEH and have been a member since becoming a student in 1997. I have been a representative on the Cymru Wales Region Management Board since 2003. I have had an interest in international development for several years and have been fortunate to have the opportunity to spend time in Peru, India and Tanzania. I have been fortunate to be the ISIG representative on Assembly of Representatives since its creation in 2011 and would like to continue in this role. I was Secretary of the ISIG for the past 8 years since its formation until last December which has allowed me to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of international activities of the different Regions and of how we should develop this. This involved engaging with partners to develop the CIEH International Strategy that should be fundamental in developing international activities. I also had the opportunity in September 2015 to give a workshop at the 1st International Federation of Environmental Health World Academic Congress on EH in Coimbra, Portugal. The Cymru Wales Region is twinned with Rwanda and I was Chair of the UK based Rwanda Association for the 7 years. This group has fundraised and sent out teaching equipment to Kigali Health Institute where the EH course is taught. I had the privilege of presenting at the first Environmental Health Conference in Rwanda in 2009 on “Professional Development in Environmental Health in the UK”. I am passionate about both the CIEH and international development and would like to continue to represent members through becoming the ISIG representative on the Assembly of Representatives. Thank you for your support.

I have been an independent Health & Safety and Food Safety advisor/auditor for the last nine years, specialising in the hotel and retail industries in Greece, Cyprus and the UK. I have audited more than 4,000 hotels in 14 different countries and I have unique experience. I have worked as an external Health & Safety advisor of NSF in Scotland. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Food Safety Management Systems and this summer I have just finished my studies and dissertation for a MSc in Environmental Health Sciences at Strathclyde University. I can promote environmental health in the hotel and retail industries  in Greece and also in Scotland, where I currently reside. With the economic crisis in Greece and in Europe generally, there is gap in the promotion and education of managers, owners and staff in the hotel industry, which increases the risks and the gaps in the effective implementation of food safety management systems and health and safety prevention systems. With my experience we can promote CIEH and environmental health.

I am a Chartered EHP and have taught around 1000 environmental health practitioners over my teaching career. I am currently a member of the Assembly of Representatives, and a management board member of the International Special Interest Group and also a member of the Professional Standards and Policy Committee as well as being part of the working group exploring the role of research within Environmental Health. I am also a co-founder of the Environmental Health Research Network. I am also a mentor in the recently launched research mentorship scheme and have been lucky enough to be party to a number of recent outputs with some of my students and other practitioners. I am a strong advocate of the profession and as an active member will continue to speak on the profession's behalf. I also see the need for a wider community for environmental health that links practitioners, in whatever guise, from around the globe, so that we as a profession have a stronger and louder voice. I would like to continue in my current role on the Assembly of Representatives with a view to pushing forward the agenda on education of environmental health practitioners; representing the student membership and how they become the future of our profession; advocating the skill set of environmental health practitioners and using research as a mechanism to show these strengths. It is my view that it is through a variety of published work that the environmental health profession will be heard; and finally speaking on behalf of and recognising the international dimensions of environmental health and developing new cadres of practitioners across the globe.

Having qualified in 1983, I have worked as an Environmental Health Practitioner in local government for 33 years, 30 of which have been at a team leader or management level. I am currently head of service responsible for Environmental Health functions within a Public Health and Public Protection Service in a large unitary authority. I also have experience of managing other council front line services including Planning, Building Control, Emergency Planning and Commercial Services (recycling, property, grounds maintenance, street cleaning, car parking and the client role for refuse collection). I believe my enthusiasm and experience of environmental health and wider corporate issues, including the ongoing pressures on local government and the changing regulatory landscape, means that I can bring this knowledge to the Assembly. I have worked with a wide range of other professional groups and have good interpersonal and rapport building skills. My specialist interests include environmental protection work, having been a member of the national LACORS Environmental Protection Forum and the BRDO Innovators group. I have extensive experience across the range of environmental health services, keeping in close touch with operational issues, and have been working recently on new service delivery models. Any contributions to the environmental health profession and CIEH membership. In the past I have held the post of both Chair and Secretary of the Wiltshire Branch of the CIEH, been a centre councillor for the CIEH Western Centre, and Chair of the Wiltshire Environmental Health Managers’ Group. I am a keen advocate of graduate training and have been instrumental for reintroducing a graduate placement at my authority.

I qualified as an EHO in 1977, working for Kerrier DC in Cornwall for 28 years, latterly as Head of EH. I became an Independent EHP in 2003 working mainly in food safety, H&S and infectious diseases, covering inspection contracts with many local authorities in the south west and elsewhere, as well as having a small client base in Cornwall delivering advice and professional services to various businesses. I had a departure from mainstream EH for 3 years whilst running a pub, and a further 2 years as Technical Manager at an approved meat plant, specifically assisting them to attain BRC certification. I conducted a successful MPhil research degree exploring the association of E. coli O157 infection with animal contact, and as a result have represented the legal teams involved in litigation following two separate incidents/outbreaks of the organism. I received instructions from the prosecution legal team, and appeared as the expert witness in a complex food poisoning outbreak case in London in 2015. The case was proven. I spent five months managing the food safety at the first European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan (June 2015). I have had a long involvement with CIEH, including the following: SW Centre representative on NEC of Society of EHOs from 1987 to 1994; elected SW Centre representative on (General) Council of CIEH from 1993 to 2005, sitting on the Food & General Health Committee (latterly the Food Expert Advisory Panel); elected by Council as an Executive Director of CHGL from 1997 to 2005, also sitting on the Training Divisional Board of CHGL; current Executive Member of the CIEH Cornwall Branch. I believe that I have demonstrated my dedication to CIEH activities and have the experience and enthusiasm required to effectively fulfil the role of South West Assembly Representative.

Keeping Environmental Health (EH) a top priority would be one of my main aims should I be elected as a West Midlands Assembly Representative of the CIEH. Working at a senior level with Birmingham City Council’s EH through this era of austerity, I have witnessed first-hand the need for EH to change and adapt in order to prosper in the future, and the requirement for decision makers to understand the need and worth of our profession. Like most EHPs, I feel my tenacious attitude towards making things happen; researching practice and evidence, considering alternative paths and scrutinising practice, continues to hold me in good stead. Extensive experience of partnership working, within public and private sectors, provides further evidence of the wide ranging skills and practices our profession has and by working together we can ensure these are maintained, enhanced and ‘future proofed’. I’m determined to ensure that good EH practice continues; through students gaining skills and knowledge, undertaking valuable work experience and supporting qualifications. I assist this through lecturing, establishing internships, placements and work experience, supporting dissertations and PPP’s, and working with local EH course leaders to ensure mutual support. My specialism focuses on the Public Health agenda, particularly smokefree. Leading the implementation of the smokefree agenda in Birmingham, and gaining the CIEH Presidents Award in 2015 for the promotion of environmental health for research into the effects of shisha smoking, I consider highlights in my career so far. My current position sits between Public Health and EH, undertaking Tobacco and Alcohol control and implementing projects to more effectively integrate EH practice into wider partnership and policy: food procurement, economic wellbeing, care home management and hoarding. Qualifying in 1994, I’ve moved from operational frontline to management, covering a wide range of EH practice, policy and strategy. I am a CIEH Voting (chartered) Member.

I have been invited by West Midlands CIEH Board to apply to be a Representative. I have been a Chartered EHP since 2003 and have wide experience of all EH disciplines both as a Field Officer and currently as a Manager for Worcestershire Regulatory Services. I also served on the West Midlands Board as a Branch Rep for a number of years and was also Regional Co-Ordinator until 2013. My main interests are food and health and safety and also the new health and wellbeing agendas. I have been a CIEH examiner for many years. I can bring a huge range of cutting edge experience to the role. I also wish to see the profession progress through the 21st century and learn and adapt to working in new ways.

I have been a member of the CIEH (or its predecessor) throughout my adult life. Since retirement, I have found that I have the time available to give back to the profession that has provided me with a varied and stimulating career over the past 3 decades. During my Local Government career (op cit.), I have worked in every specialism of our profession and managed professional and technical staff. My work indicates that this (very) wide experience is comparatively rare in our contemporary membership. Whilst being involved in all CIEH work, my specialist interests include air quality, housing, permitted processes and noise control. In my career, I strongly believe that I have upheld both the Nolan Principles and the CIEH Professional Code of Conduct. Team working and excellent customer service standards are second nature to me, as are working to tight deadlines and with a demanding workload. I have retained key contacts in the profession (especially in the West Midlands region) and have experience of 'speaking truth to power' to represent the views of others.
