Who is Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green Kt?
Sir Al Aynsley-Green has devoted his career to improving the lives and opportunities of all children. His book, The British Betrayal of Childhood: Challenging Uncomfortable Truths and Bringing About Change (release date October 2018) asks uncomfortable questions of the government and society as a whole. Based on his practice as a preeminent paediatrician and as the first children's Commissioner for England, he will lead us in an interactive conversation to examine why infancy is so important and how early experiences affect life chances. He seeks to challenge any commonly held preconceptions and to focus on how, as CIMIs, we can best use infant massage to effect positive change.
He first trained in medicine at Guy's Hospital Medical School, University of London, then as a children's physician and a paediatric endocrinologist. He was a Lecturer in Paediatrics at Green College, University of Oxford. He then became a Professor of Child Health and Head of the School of Clinical Medical Sciences in the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, followed by Nuffield Professor of Child Health and Director of Clinical Research at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and the Institute of Child Health, University College London
He was appointed the first National Clinical Director for Children in the Department of Health in Government in 2000, before becoming the first independent statutory Children's Commissioner for England from 2005-10. He is now Professor Emeritus of Child Health at University College London, and Professor of Advocacy for Children and Childhood, Nottingham Trent University. He is Founder of Aynsley-Green Consulting, engaging with governments and organisations worldwide on children, childhood and children's services, and lay canon emeritus of Salisbury Cathedral.
He has received many national and international awards and, in 2006, he was knighted by HM the Queen for his services to children and young people.
