Public health consultancy
Hannah is a highly accomplished public health specialist with particular expertise and a specialist interest in obesity and the associated chronic diseases (diabetes, CVD, NAFLD), nutrition, healthy eating, food policy and physical activity.
Hannah understands that the current environment we live in makes it challenging for people to lead healthy lives, which can often lead to ill health. She aims to tackle this by working on public health projects that focus on improving the food and activity environments and providing treatment services for those that need additional support.
She has worked at a local, regional and national level on policy, strategy, needs assessments, quantitative and qualitative evaluations, commissioning and procurement, service delivery, training sessions (face-to-face and e-learning), and she has pioneered work on obesity care pathways.
A sample of her work includes:
Great Weight Debate: London’s Conversation on Childhood Obesity
Hannah led on the independent evaluation of the Great Weight Debate (GWD). The team analysed the GWD survey responses and highlighted key concerns around London’s food and activity environment. They also looked at additional evidence from cities abroad and asked expert opinion to make recommendations for pan-London action.
Tower Hamlets Adult Obesity Care Pathway and Resource Pack
Hannah is the author of the local obesity care pathways for adults and children in Tower Hamlets. They are frameworks for frontline staff to ensure the local implementation of national guidance and evidence, whilst being aligned with the needs of the local population. The resource pack is a structured guide that provides further information for each stage of the pathway. Hannah also rolled out face-to-face training sessions to support implementation of the pathway.
Obesity Care Pathway Support Package
Hannah is the key author of the London obesity care pathway training and support package. The interactive resource includes workbooks (adult, child and maternal obesity), videos providing a step-by-step guide to developing local pathways, editable templates, and case studies from a number of London boroughs. The support pack is available to use for free on the HealthKnowledge website.
Using Service-Users’ Views to Design a Maternal Obesity Intervention
Hannah completed a maternal obesity health needs assessment for Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity. The results of which were written up for two publications in the British Journal of Midwifery and British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. The findings also informed the design of a randomised control trial for obese pregnant women.
Understanding NAFLD Referral Pathways in the UK and Ireland
Hannah led on a project commissioned by Gilead Sciences Ltd on NAFLD referral pathways. The project included a review of the guidelines and literature (published and grey) on NAFLD care pathways and stakeholder interviews with key clinicians, public health professionals and policy makers. The findings have been presented as posters at two international conferences: EASL (The European Association for the Study of the Liver) and ECOICO (European and International Congress on Obesity).
