My guest today used to run the NHS. Lord Nigel Crisp was Chief Executive of the English NHS and Permanent Secretary of the UK Department of Health from 2000-2006.


He now works and writes mainly on global health with a focus on Africa. Lord Crisp is a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, an Honorary Professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and a Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Medicine. He was formerly a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health and Regent’s Lecturer at Berkeley.


His current focus is on creating health and promoting the causes of health. Having worked in the NHS for over 20 years, the last 10 have been spent in Africa and India which has led him to think differently about health and well-being and health systems and public services more generally. Nigel believes organisations must all play their part in building a society and environment where communities and individuals can thrive and flourish. This goes far beyond the reach of the NHS and government and everyone has a role to play.


We have a fascinating conversation about:

  • Developing the health workforce
  • Why a salutogenic approach to health is key
  • What we can learn from developing nations with far less budget
  • The ideas of how interconnected and interdependent we are in health globally, just as we are in every other area of our lives.


This is a concept really brought to life with the most recent pandemic, but something that Lord Nigel has been writing and talking about for years.

His latest book, Turning the World Upside Down Again – global health in a time of pandemics, climate change and political turmoil is a fascinating read and one I hope many policymakers will read and put into action.

BONUS Why your story matters and how to find purpose with Mark Leruste

Most people are afraid of what others might think or say if they showed up as their true authentic selves. Especially in a business context. That’s why so many of us are terrified of sharing our story authentically in public and struggle to make a lasting impact when introducing ourselves. But what if you could effortlessly enroll and engage your audience every time you introduced yourself be it at work, on stage or even on a podcast?To talk about this, I have a good friend of mine on the podcast, Mark Leruste. He was previously Country Manager of The Movember Foundation, he has an award winning podcast ‘The Unconventionalists’ and has an inspiring TEDx talk.Mark is on a mission to eradicate career misery in the workplace for the next generation of leaders by helping organisations and those who lead them clarify their purpose to better lead and inspire their people, and share their story more powerfully so the world listens. His book “Glow In The Dark” is a guide to learn how to raise your profile and impact the world with your story.But why are stories important? I’ll be honest, I’m a bit of a skeptic when it comes to words like being your true, authentic self. What does this actually mean? I learnt a lot from Mark.Check out the book Glow in the Dark in all good bookshops and online, plus the website https://www.glowinthedarkbook.com/🎬 Watch the podcast on YouTube here📱 Download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for freeYou can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for free to get access to all of our recipes, with specific suggestions tailored to your health needs and new recipes added every month.

BONUS Learn to Thrive with Dr Nasha Winters

🎬 Watch the podcast on YouTube here📱 Download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for freeToday’s episode contains pretty stark descriptions of how many environmental pollutants we’re exposed to. Which is scary and could be triggering for a number of people. Dr Nasha Winters, who has suffered with cancer herself, does not shy away from the realities of our toxic environment and dealing with cravings for addictive foods so if you feel that you may be triggered by these descriptions then I reckon this is probably not the podcast to listen to.Part of the reason why we wanted to release this episode, despite it being slightly out of the norm of our typically conversation, is because we need to build mental resilience to these realities. Unfortunately we have a toxic environment, and in fact in December 2020 Southwark Coroner's Court found that air pollution "made a material contribution" to the death of 9 year old Ella Kiss-Debrah in 2013, after over two years of severe asthma attacks and cardiac arrests that led to multiple hospital visits. Our environment is having an impact on our health whether we would like to appreciate that or not and I will personally be diving into these topics a lot more.So, I would keep an open mind for today’s podcast!Remember you can watch as well as listen to the podcast on YouTube and you can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for free to get access to all of our recipes, with specific suggestions tailored to your health needs and new recipes added every month.
