You will explore opportunities for further collaboration, and support research-based responses to the challenges facing health and wellbeing in modern policing. Building on their successful multi-agency approach, you will be the voice of occupational health in the Alliance, as well as providing representation and thought leadership both regionally and nationally.

To succeed in this role, you will be a senior occupational physician with appropriate GMC registration. You will bring extensive experience in leading and strategically developing occupational health services in large, complex organisations.
