Consultation on statutory regulation
The Department of Health has published a consultation on the regulation of public health specialists from a background other than medicine or dentistry.
The document can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/public-health-specialists-regulation.
The Health and Care Professions Council will be consulting separately at a later date on the standards and entry criteria that will apply to the new part of its register.
Due to parliamentary constraints, the consultation closes on Friday 14 November 2014. FPH will be responding directly to the consultation.
We urge members to also respond directly but also welcome feedback from members to inform the FPH response. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 20 October 2014.
