Mprove are looking to appoint a growth consultant on a retained basis for 5 months to support us on a development programme
Conversations about health and well-being are an important part of every person’s life and includes talking about body image and perception. All of us have unique features in life that can affect our health and growth, such as a disability, mental health, genetics, and eating preferences but for many conversations can often feel difficult especially when weight stigma is institutionalised.
There are many factors that determine our body image, genetics, size, weight, height. This is called ‘Body Diversity’. Other things that make our bodies different from one another are our abilities including our mobility. Differences in size, shape, and abilities are normal. Appreciating all body types is important. This is called ‘Body Positivity’.
Working with NHS and Independent sector obesity surgery services our plan is to scale pre and post operative obesity surgery therapeutic support by developing a new strategic partnership who deliver operations with gastric band specifically, requiring 4 to 6 band adjustments before it is correctly adjusted for the patient.
Appointments in this initial 1-to-2-year period are more likely to succeed in the long-term weight loss goals if the acute medical team can support patients with new affordable psychological interventions specifically supporting patients with coping mechanisms typically associated with binging and purging and restricting behaviours which is only currently available in eating disorder services.
Successfully meet the KPIs of the grant income to generate revenue related to obesity services in 22/23.
To achieve this, we will need the Growth Consultant to work with the project team to strategically introduce the programme to suitable stakeholders.
Ideally the candidate will have experience or extensive network within eating disorder services, population health management, specialised pathway commissioning and obesity strategy development.
Available for a minimum of 8 hours per month on a flexible basis
