Prof. Gina Radford’s Legacy as National FASD Trustee

Prof Gina Radford Steps Down

Share this post


Rev. Prof. Gina Radford has announced she is stepping down from her position as a Trustee for our organisation, as a result of growing demands on her working life. Gina is a former deputy chief medical officer for England, and has helped to guide National FASD in its recent expansion.


“I am very sad to have to step down, particularly at this exciting time for the organisation. There is so much good work going on in the area of FASD, and so much more that needs to be done. National FASD is at the forefront, helping to drive this agenda forward and I am very sorry not to be part of this important work going forward.”


While in the role of deputy CMO, she arranged a series of meetings on FASD, and was chair of a large number of national committees, including a public health advisory committee for the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

National FASD Chief Executive, Sandy Butcher, said:


“I still remember our chat in the first roundtable on FASD that Prof. Radford hosted while Deputy CMO. Little had I dreamed at that time, that just a couple of years later we’d be imminently awaiting the coming NICE Draft Quality Standard, in the wake of a DHSC FASD health needs assessment. The FASD community is so thankful for all the transformative work Gina and her team at the time set in motion. Her proactivity as a trustee has also been so helpful to the organisation. All of us here at National FASD will miss her involvement and wish her well in the good work she is doing.”
