Public Health Consultant
Join a Council that places prevention and tackling inequalities at the heart of its work
The London Borough of Lewisham serves one of the most ethnically diverse populations in England, and like many inner city councils, it faces the challenges of unequal health and life chances among its communities, and significantly reduced public sector resources. The council, together with key partners in health and across the voluntary sector, is continuing to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic whilst, taking a whole system approach to improving the health and wellbeing of its residents, placing prevention and tackling health inequalities at the heart of its health and social care work.
Lewisham's public health team sits within the directorate of community services (which includes adult services, sport and leisure services and environmental health), but the team works closely across all council directorates and provides public health support to the South East London CCG.
Laurence House, Catford Road, London SE6 4RU
