Christopher Smith



Christopher joined GGI as a Researcher in October 2013 and has since risen to the position of Consultant.

Whilst at GGI Christopher has worked on several major projects with CCGs and GPs, including a significant piece of work with NHS England producing guidance to support CCG governance. He has supported some of GGI’s most sensitive and high-profile assignments, such as a recent investigation into clinical governance issues in the Channels Islands, and is currently leading GGI’s governance work with Healthwatch England.

Prior to joining GGI, Christopher completed an internship at Build Africa, a charity working in rural Uganda and Kenya that aims to help young people escape poverty through education and income generation projects. He has also conducted research projects for a number of human rights NGOs including Child Soldiers International and Natural Justice.

Christopher completed his postgraduate degree in Applied Human Rights at the University of York in 2013, where his primary research focused on the socio-economic impact of child soldiering. He previously gained an undergraduate degree with honours in History from the same University.



Outside of work, Chris enjoys running and recently completed a half marathon with several colleagues at GGI.
