SSAFA Health Visitor appointed to World Health Organisation role


Kerry Riley, SSAFA Health Visitor for Episkopi Cyprus and Kenya BATUK, has been delivering excellent health care support for SSAFA since March 2017. Her passion is seeing the difference that her work makes to the military community on a daily basis.

After seeing and applying for a new role being advertised, Cyprus-based Kerry has recently also been appointed as Public Health Technical Advisor for the World Health Organisation for a part-time role. This will entail promoting new guidance whilst also running alongside her current vital work with SSAFA.

Kerry’s expertise in facilitating and advising on healthcare equality will complement both roles. SSAFA Cyprus continues to be at the forefront of service delivery and this additional role will also enable her to share any new public health guidance and protocols with colleagues.

Speaking of her appointment, Kerry said: “I am very thankful to SSAFA for their support in me applying for and carrying out this role, I do see my role as advisor allowing me to guide colleagues and support SSAFA’s existing service delivery”.
