Senior Fellow, Public Health and Inequalities

David joined The King's Fund in January 2011 to lead on public health and inequalities.

Before joining the Fund, David worked at the Department of Health as Head of Health Inequalities. He managed the previous government's PSA target on health inequalities, the independent Marmot Review of inequalities in health and helped to shape the coalition's policies on health inequalities. Whilst in the Department he worked on many policy areas including diabetes, long-term conditions, the pharmaceutical industry, childhood obesity and choice and competition.
