For one week only - special membership offer for allied health professionals

The Faculty of Public Health (FPH), along with Public Health England (PHE), is co-sponsoring the Advancing Healthcare Award 2018 for Contributions to Public Health which celebrates the work of allied health professionals (AHPs). Entries for the 2018 awards have opened, so, for one week only, if you’re an AHP and not a member of FPH, we’ve got two membership offers for you, depending on what stage of your career you’re at.

1. Associate Membership: £30 for the first year
(reduced from the standard cost of £49 per year)

If you join as an FPH Associate, you’ll be able to:

  • Contribute to the FPH aim of ensuring that the world’s population achieves, and maintains, its fullest potential for health and wellbeing
  • Be kept informed of our work, as we quality assure standards, support continuing professional development and campaign on public health issues
  • Receive a free online subscription to Public Health Today, FPH’s quarterly magazine, keeping you on top of public health issues
  • Receive a monthly e-bulletin with updates on FPH and wider public health news
  • Have opportunities to get involved in our Special Interest Groups to debate and discuss public health issues.

2. FPH Practitioner: £94 for the first year (reduced from the standard cost of £140)

This is the membership option for you if you want to join FPH at a more senior level. FPH defines practitioners as members of the public health workforce who work in various areas of public health practice, including health improvement, health protection and health and social care. This means you’ll probably be working at levels 5 to 7 of the current Public Health Skills & Knowledge Framework (PHSKF) but may also be working in advanced roles above level 7.

Additionally to the above-mentioned benefits, you’ll be able to:

  • Access our continual professional development
  • Get use of the post-nominals 'PFPH' after your name.

To take up one of the offers above, email before Sunday 26 November (inclusive) and quote 'AHPF' in the subject header. You’ll then receive an email from the membership team to get you set up.

Lastly, if you want to find out more about Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner Gill Rawlinson, who won this year’s Contribution to Public Health award, and the doors it opened for her, read her article on our blog.
