Further transforming the health and well-being of our population and improving health, care, and wellness across the borough is a major priority for us, building on a strong platform of success in recent years. As our Director of Public Health, you will be at the forefront of leading our system wide efforts to make a radical and sustainable impact on population health and wellness, including local leadership of health protection and emergency planning. You will be a visible system leader alongside NHS colleagues in our Healthier Wigan Partnership arrangements and across Greater Manchester through the GM DsPH network, working to ensure that our public health system delivers improved outcomes. You will inspire development of innovative solutions that deliver improvements in health and wellbeing and a reduction in health inequalities, whilst maintaining the confidence of councillors, local partners and government.
