CHSS shortlisted for Darzi Fellowship in public health - Are you an NHS clinician with a passion for breastfeeding and leadership?

27 November 2017


The Darzi Fellowship is a highly prestigious opportunity and the Kent Surrey and Sussex award holder will undertake a standardised assessment of breastfeeding in Kent and Medway through the Becoming Breastfeeding Friendly (BBF) project under the supervision of CHSS Professor of Community Nursing and Public Health, Sally Kendall

BBF UK is a national project being undertaken with Yale University as part of an international comparative study and CHSS is leading on the UK contribution. The project will assess 54 benchmark statements demonstrating the current status of the countries involved in relation to breastfeeding.

The completion of the bench-marking assessment in Kent and Medway will provide an analysis of where there is both best practice and gaps in policy, services and research. It will sit alongside the current work being undertaken by Kent Community Health Foundation Trust to achieve BFI accreditation with UNICEF UK.

The Fellow will be part of the UK team and will have the opportunity to engage at national and international levels on the project with world-leading experts. They will ideally be a health visitor, midwife or public health practitioner with a passion for breastfeeding and a strong knowledge base.
