The Health and Europe Centre
Alice Chapman-Hatchett is the Director of the Health and Europe Centre, a social enterprise in the UK. A social enterprise is a business with a social purpose that reinvests all the money it makes back into the business, or the local community, so that when a social enterprise profits, society profits. The Centre’s primary aim is to bring European learning, practice and policy to the local NHS community. The Centre is currently running 6 European public health projects, all improving patient services and care, with a project portfolio in excess of €33m.
Alice studied modern languages at the University of London and continued her studies to become an interpreter and translator. She has extensive European and public sector experience and has developed projects and partnerships in Europe and further afield. She has worked in European Affairs for local and regional government in the UK and has 11 years’ experience of working in the public health field.
As Director of the Centre, Alice focuses on promoting co-operation with health and social care experts in other EU countries to develop EU funded projects, explore evidence of good practice and create links for exchanges and shared learning. She co-ordinates the work of her team and is also responsible for all management aspects of the Centre.
