Evidence shows that power inequity underpins inequalities in health, wellbeing and life expectancy such as we see in Yorkshire and Humber.

The Fellow will shape the details of the project from options such as:• developing a regional system leadership model for equitable power• exploring how the system’s ways of working can redress power imbalance to improve services• leading strategic action on this issue across organisational boundaries. As a fellow on the future leadership programme, you will have the opportunity to work across organisational boundaries including with NHS trusts, regional ICSs, regional DHSC teams, and the region’s Association of Directors of Public Health as well as local councils, voluntary and community groups. As a successful applicant you will have access to a variety of personal development opportunities (e.g. CV and interview training, media training, Myers Briggs Type Indicator feedback, 360 appraisal, coaching, participation in an action learning set) and will be supported to undertake one year of a postgraduate qualification.
