West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership's Improving Population Health Programme has once again launched its Fellowship Programme - which next year will be expanded to host 70 fellows, including five for suicide prevention. Image shows the logo for the fellowship programme focusing on suicide prevention.jpg

Applications are now open for fellowship's class of 2024, to work on projects designed to make a positive difference to population health and reduce inequalities across West Yorkshire. 

The deadline for applications is Friday December 15th and, as well as five suicide prevention fellows, the programme is also looking for 40 health equity fellows, 30 adversity, trauma and resilience (ATR) fellows, five climate change fellows and five antimicrobial resistance (AMR) fellows. 

The fellowship is open to all employees across West Yorkshire, irrespective of current job role, grade or profession. Fellows are expected to dedicate one day a week to the fellowship, to attend meetings or training, work on a project bespoke to the fellowship theme and deliver the project at work or join up with system-wide initiatives taking place in West Yorkshire. 

Further information, including a statement of interest form, is available on the Partnership's Improving Population Health pages

Last year, the programme appointed 52 fellows who have been carrying out projects in their chosen area. For more information on this work, visit the 2023 pages of the website. 

Fellowship information events will be held on Wednesday November 22nd from 1-2pm or Thursday November 30th from 11am to 12pm. To receive a Microsoft Teams meeting to either of these, email valerie.mzizi@nhs.net
