Dr James said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining the CIEH with its long history and proud reputation. During the pandemic the importance and relevance of environmental health has been recognised and the profile of the profession has never been higher.

“I am acutely aware of the passion of CIEH members, the diversity of their technical skills and their desire to be well represented.

"I am very much looking forward to engaging with members as I work with the CIEH board and staff team to future-proof the CIEH and improve its offering to existing members and EH professionals coming through the ranks.”
