Consultant in Public Health Medicine – Proactive and Preventative Care

Job Ref: EG147709

Thank you for your interest in joining our growing #TeamPublicHealth in the North East. This post is permanent, 37.5 hours per week (AfC) / 40 hours per week (Medical).

We are lucky to have strong partnerships across Public, Private, Third Sector, and communities in the Northeast with many examples of good practice and innovation to protect and improve population health. In common with Scotland as a whole, the pandemic has compounded many of the health challenges we are grappling with, which are significant and in places worsening. As partners we recognise the need to apply the lessons learned from our pandemic response to enduring issues such as inequalities. To ensure we learn and adapt from our collective experiences, and in recognition of our shared responsibilities, we have created a North East Alliance. Over the coming months we will be working with a growing and diverse membership. By bringing our collective knowledge together, with data and evidence, we want to have powerful conversations and take action to deliver our vision of thriving communities living fulfilled lives.

You will be surrounded by leaders seeking to transform their systems to improve the health of the population. Leaders who aspire to put population health at the centre of everything they do. Leaders who are seeking the right person, with the right skills, attitude, and ambition to make change happen.

You will provide Consultant level input to supporting a population health approach to the planning of healthcare services in Grampian, with a focus of prevention and proactive care. In addition, you will act as Lead Public Health Consultant working with Health and Social Care Aberdeenshire, providing professional leadership and highly specialist advice throughout and beyond the organisation on public health issues. As Lead Consultant you will work within a multi-professional environment to support and develop partnership working across the Health and Social Care Partnership and Community Planning Partnership, other agencies and communities.
