Job description

We are looking for a clinician (from medical, nursing or AHP background) with a strong interest and experience in population health approaches to help transform healthcare for the future. The Health Inequality Fellow will work closely with clinicians to provide support, training and advice to develop key areas for investigation and use population health data to define their key questions and shape local interventions on the ground.

  • Supporting elective recovery and reducing health inequalities
