Role responsibilities:

  • Lead on health protection, providing additional Consultant capacity to the team during the COVID response.
  • Provide strategic leadership and public health advice, both across the council wider and system to support the COVID response.
  • Current priorities include: supporting delivery of the Test and Trace Programme; developing and embedding the COVID-19 Local Outbreak Control Plan; and providing public health input into the Local Resilience Forum COVID-19 operational cells.
  • Support the wider work of the Health Protection Team, including addressing environmental impacts on health.
  • Direct line management of up to six members of the integrated, multi-disciplinary public health team

Applicants must hold Inclusion in the GMC Specialist Register/GDC Specialist List/UK Public Health Register (UKPHR) for Public Health Specialists OR Public health specialty registrar applicants who are not yet on the GMC Specialist Register/GDC Specialist List in dental public health/UKPHR must provide verifiable signed documentary evidence that they are within 6 months of gaining entry at the date of interview.
