The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted vast health inequalities across Yorkshire and the Humber, but it did not create them. Prior to the start of the pandemic over a third of children in South Yorkshire lived in poverty, and people from the most deprived areas of South Yorkshire spent 20 years less living in good health than those from the most affluent areas. Our most vulnerable populations have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic, worsening already poor health outcomes and widening the inequality gap.This requires a fundamental change and commitment to addressing health inequalities and improving population health. It requires a paradigm shift, to refocus efforts on prevention, keeping people in good health and prioritising those in the greatest need. Examples of good practice are occurring within our local areas, but there is more that can be done to support this and replicate at scale. This project will allow the successful applicant work alongside senior public health consultants and take on a strategic leadership role in improving population health and addressing health inequalities across South Yorkshire.
