Dr Chris Chiswell
Consultant in Public Health Medicine
Chris was the first public health consultant to be employed by an acute hospital in the West Midlands, and one of only a handful nationally. He enables us to push for fairer wellbeing opportunities, improving the chances we all have of living in healthy and nurturing communities, with access to good education and employment.
He trained in the West Midlands, and has a particular interest in healthcare strategy informed by population need, which he uses to support the development of our long-term strategy at the Trust. He is also the deputy training programme director for public health in the West Midlands for Health Education England.
