Professor Jebb’s three year term as FSA Chair was due to end on 30 June 2024, but Ministers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland had asked her to stay on.  There was insufficient time before the election to complete this process but a temporary extension has been agreed to allow consideration by new Ministers.  

Professor Jebb who, alongside her FSA role, is also Professor of Diet and Population Health at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford, said: 

“It remains a huge privilege to be the Chair of such a fantastic organisation, and I am happy to remain as FSA Chair at this important time. I am extremely grateful to colleagues at the University of Oxford whose support has made this possible.” 

The appointment is made by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and counterparts in Wales and NI.
