The Covid pandemic has highlighted the impacts of health inequalities in our communities but has provided new opportunities to break down silos and boundaries between organisations who are committed to working to improve the health outcomes of their residents.
This important new role is pivotal to the continuation of the successful partnerships that have developed locally – we’ve taken it so far – how far could you take it?
Building on work started under the Vanguard programme which has become intrinsic to our local models of care, we’ve formed strong and forward-thinking Primary Care Networks.
Working across five towns, three local authorities and two county councils – it is a complex footprint that provides an interesting and sometimes challenging landscape for someone with ambition to work within.
The Programme Director for Healthier Communities will have responsibility for developing deeper partnership approaches which drive health improvement within and across the North East Hampshire and Farnham area. The post holder will use and build on these effective relationships with all partners to find innovative, responsive initiatives that will deliver our ambitions to reduce health inequalities, at pace.
We are offering this post on a 12-month fixed term appointment. The post reports into the Executive Place Managing Director but will work closely with the leads at Hart District Council, Rushmoor Borough Council and Waverley Borough Council as well as with Public Health teams in Hampshire and Surrey County Councils to ensure a truly integrated approach to reducing health inequalities in our towns.
For further information on this post please contact Daryl Gasson, Executive Place Managing Director, via his PA Karen Prestige at firstname.lastname@example.org
