The Health Defence Coordinator will be responsible for the delivery of the Health Defence programme based at Maryhill Hub covering North West Glasgow. The role includes delivering health checks; healthy lifestyle workshops; and supporting lifestyle change to reduce the risk of our conditions in local communities, particularly where there is a high prevalence of health inequalities and deprivation.
