Newham changemaker

As Director of Public Health, Jason and his team are responsible for determining the overall vision and objectives for public health in Newham. His role is to ensure that health is a priority for everyone.

“COVID-19 has impacted everyone’s lives. Our plan focuses on prevention, as well as being able to react effectively to incidents and outbreaks. Not only must we focus on the direct impact of the infection but we must also consider the indirect effects on physical and mental health, social and economic wellbeing.”
