Dr. Frances Mortimer

Medical Director

Frances has led the development of our innovative Sustainable Specialty programmes, which combine research with practical action to improve patient care at a lower environmental and social cost. She has a particular interest in engaging health professionals in clinical transformation and sustainable leadership: she first identified CSH’s four principles of Sustainable Clinical Practice and later developed and published the SusQI framework for integrating sustainbility with quality improvement.

Until 2011, Frances continued part time clinical work in the Oxford Kidney Unit, having left specialist training in renal medicine in 2008 to work in sustainable healthcare. She studied medicine at Oxford University and at the Royal Free & University College London Medical School, graduating in 2003 before working for five years in the National Health Service.
