The UK Voluntary Register for Public Health Specialists has been established to promote public confidence in specialist public health practice in the UK through independent regulation.
It will achieve this by:
• publishing a register of competent Public Health Specialists
• ensuring through periodic revalidation that Public Health. Specialists keep up to date and maintain competence.
• dealing with registered specialists who fail to meet the necessary standards.
Registration is designed to assure the public and employers which multidisciplinary specialists in public health are appropriately qualified and competent. It sets standards that will be recognised throughout the United Kingdom and provide significant public protection from unprofessional or unethical behaviour.
