Active Oxfordshire is seeking an exceptional individual to help us promote physical activity across the county.

Are you a strong clinical leader? Are you committed to improving rates of physical activity across Oxfordshire? If so this exciting and innovative new role is for you.

We are looking to recruit to this dynamic role, which requires a vociferous / enthusiastic supporter and determination to fight inactivity levels in Oxfordshire: we are seeking a primary care physician or healthcare professional, who is extremely passionate about physical activity (PA) and actively champions the cause.

This role requires: a suitably experienced primary care physician / healthcare professional to act as a PA Clinical Champion to embed physical activity into routine clinical care.

You should have: substantial knowledge and skills on best methods to incorporate PA into everyday clinical practice; a desire to play a crucial championing role maximising your primary care and CCG connections, working side by side with AO to penetrate the PCN networks and engage with GPs to ensure PA advice and prescription is embedded in the foundations of primary care.
