How FPH's members and associates can get involved

Members' time, expertise and support is vital to the Faculty of Public Health's (FPH's) work. If you are an FPH member or associate and would like to get involved, there are many ways to do so:


  • Get involved in media, advocacy and policy activity. If you have an interest and expertise in one or more policy areas, let us know. We rely on our expert members to take soundings on a range of public health policy issues. If you could help us with behind-the-scenes policy activity or could be available at short notice for media work, please email to find out more
  • Join an FPH Network Group. These are discussion groups designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas, knowledge and best practice in the field of public health. As well as encouraging discussion and collaboration, the network groups system allows for the development of a communal resource of reference documents and useful links
  • Join a committee or special interest group. There are numerous committees and special interest groups (SIGs) that help shape FPH's governance, decision-making and policy priorities. Email to find out more
  • Help maintain high standards in our exams and curriculum. If you would like to be involved in one of FPH's education committees or are interested in becoming an examiner, email to find out more
  • Support FPH's role in career development and standard-setting. If you would like to be involved in FPH standards and workforce committees or are interested in becoming an FPH external assessor on senior appointment panels, email to find out more
  • Submit an idea for a blog. FPH’s award-winning blog, Better Health for All, needs new ideas and content to keep it fresh. If you have a suggestion for a blog topic, or would like to join our informal Blog Club to discuss your ideas, please email
