Your Medical Officers Of Health

Your Medical Officers of Health are public health physicians (doctors) who specialise in the health of groups or whole communities rather than working on individual healthcare.

The Medical Officers of Health are designated by the Director General of Health. The purpose of the Medical Officer of Health role is to improve, protect and promote the health of the population in their districts.

They regularly publish reports that provide information, comment and opinion on current public health topics and issues.
