FPH welcomes government response on regulation

FPH has welcomed the government's response to the consultation on the regulation of public health specialists. Commenting on the response, Meradin Peachey, FPH's Vice President for Standards, said:

“We welcome the government’s commitment to the statutory regulation of public health specialists from backgrounds other than medicine and dentistry.

"Statutory regulation gives important assurance to everyone that the public health specialists who are employed on their behalf are properly trained and regulated. It also gives public health specialists recognition of their vital role in protecting and improving the public’s health.
 
“FPH acknowledge and highly value the vital contributions the UK Public Health Register have made in establishing the voluntary register and in moving the profession towards a position where statutory regulation can now be established.”
