She is expected to take on the newly created group director of communications and public affairs role as soon as her appointment is cleared by the Cabinet Office.

Jarvis resigned from her role as director general of communications in July and left in September.

In the role, she worked closely with Asda as part of the Government’s Change4Life campaign and the Great Swapathon.

DoH named Sam Lister, former health editor for the Times, as her replacement in the role of director of communications with responsibility for PR and marketing, earlier this month.
