Ingrid is also Director of the Children and Young People’s Health Partnership in Lambeth and Southwark, where she has led the development and evaluation of a new model of children’s health care. She is a consultant in child public health at Evelina London Children’s Hospital and clinical senior lecturer in child public health at King's College London. Ingrid is co-chair of the British Association for Child and Adolescent Public Health, and was awarded an OBE for services to children’s health in 2016.
