Practitioner Regulation

The UK Public Health Register has registered and regulated Public Health Specialists since 2003 and is now looking into registering and regulating Public Health Practitioners, a workforce that at present remains largely unregulated but that have key public health roles.

The public health practitioner workforce covers a wide cross section of public health specialties in a wide range of settings, such as the NHS, local authorities, the voluntary, and private sector. They work across the full breadth of public health activity from health improvement and health protection, to health information, sustainable and community development, pharmacy, and nutrition.
