New Head of School announced

Professor Ken Judge has been appointed as Head of the School for Health at the University of Bath.

He is currently Professor of Health Policy in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Glasgow and previously held a similar position at the University of Kent.

Before that, for eleven years to 1977, he was Director of the King's Fund Policy Institute, helping it become one of the UK’s leading centres for health policy research.

“I am delighted to be joining the University of Bath,” said Professor Judge. “These are challenging times for health policy and health services and the School for Health has huge potential to build on its existing strengths to make a wide range of practical and scientific contributions.”

Professor Judge has published widely on many aspects of public health and health policy, but is probably best known for his work on health inequalities.

He will take up his appointment on 1 September 2006.

He succeeds Professor Peter Redfern who has been Acting Director of the School for Health since 2004.
