Dame Carol Black is Adviser on Work and Health at the Department of Health, England, Chair of the Nuffield Trust, Chair of the Governance Board, Centre for Workforce Intelligence and Principal of Newnham College Cambridge.

As Expert Adviser to the Department of Health, Dame Carol Black plays a major ambassadorial role, building and promoting the public and policy position on the positive relationship between work and health. She is Chair of the Health at Work network, part of the UK Government's Public Health Responsibility Deal, set up to engage commercial, public and third sector organisations in improving public health.

Previously she was the first National Director for Health and Work (2006 – 2011), a role created to provide independent leadership to a cross-Government health, work and well-being agenda.

As National Director she led an independent review of the health of Britain’s working age population, Working for a healthier tomorrow (2008), which was accepted by Government with broad cross-party support.

Subsequently, with David Frost CBE (then Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce) she co-chaired Health at Work - an independent Review of Sickness Absence (2011) for the UK Secretary of State for Work and Pensions
