Public Health Engagement Coordinator (PHEC) London
Full time, 37.5 hours per week. 3 year fixed term contract
£33-35,000 per annum
This brand new role provides a unique opportunity to develop the vital cervical cancer prevention work that, national charity, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust undertakes and will educate and empower women to make decisions about their own health, reduce health inequalities and incidence of cervical cancer.
The London PHEC will work alongside their Manchester and Glasgow equivalents which will in turn feed into a bigger campaign entitled ‘Eradicate Cervical Cancer’. The campaign aims to increase the uptake of cervical screening (smear tests) among four key groups: Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) women, disadvantaged communities, women aged 25-29 and women over 50. It has been funded by a grant from the UK Treasury’s Tampon Tax Fund and the Scottish government.
In the London PHEC role you will help work with hard to reach groups where cervical screening uptake and knowledge is lower than the national average. Increased evidence from academic research indicates disparity between white women and BAME communities in screening attendance, knowledge of the test and understanding the link between Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer. Additionally barriers have been identified which prevent women from BAME communities attending screening and for young women having the HPV vaccine. Inequalities in screening attendance have also been identified among women with learning disabilities.
This role will work towards better understanding of those barriers by connecting with and building relationships within specific communities and a range of stakeholders involved in the screening process.You will also be working with health care professionals and local health authorities to improve screening and vaccination uptake.
This role is all about improving health at a grassroots level and ultimately in this position you will help save lives!
