Personal profile

Research interests

Following clinical work in England and Africa, Angela Raffle trained in Public Health and has practised as a Consultant in Public Health in Bristol since 1990. During this time she has played a key role in researching the full consequences of screening, particularly in relation to cervical screening. She helped pioneer the delivery of screening as high quality systematic programmes capable of doing more good than harm at affordable cost, and she challenged the ethics of giving one-sided information aimed at achieving uptake rather than enabling informed choice. With Sir Muir Gray she is author of the leading international textbook on screening, the second edition of which was published in June 2019. She has worked as a Consultant to the UK National Screening Programmes since their inception in 1996, playing a role in quality assurance, policy making, service evaluation and the management of screening incidents. From 1995 she was the cancer programmes Public Health lead for Avon Somerset and Wiltshire, helping to introduce standard setting and quality assurance for cancer services generally. She was instrumental in setting up, and chairing, the Avon Somerset and Wiltshire Cancer Drug Forum, a forerunner to NICE, which involved patients and clinicians and ensured a systematic approach to introduction of new drugs and technologies. Since 2009 she has turned her attention to ecological public health issues, commissioning the Who Feeds Bristol report, helping create the Good Food Plan for Bristol and being part of the team that enabled Bristol to become the second English City to achieve Silver in the Sustainable Food Cities Awards. She also helped to found The Community Farm in Chew Valley, a community owned organic farm that welcomes people onto the land.
