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.

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
