Sir Al Aynsley-Green trained as a children’s physician, was James Spence Professor of Child Health in the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, then Nuffield Professor of Child Health and Director of Clinical Research at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. He is now Professor Emeritus of Child Health at University College London and Founder of Aynsley-Green Consulting, engaging with governments and organisations worldwide on children, childhood and children’s services.

He was knighted by HM the Queen for his services to children and young people in 2006 and in June 2013 received the James Spence Medal of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.

Sir Al was bereaved of his father when he was 10 years old; this life-changing tragedy giving him his motivation to train as a doctor and his commitment to promote the importance of grief in childhood. His personal insights allow him to relate directly to bereaved children today. He is Patron of the national Childhood Bereavement Network, and works with colleagues in Canada, Australia, Norway, and across the EU to share best practice and improve awareness of the importance of childhood grief.
