Revised version of Good Public Health Practice launched

The Faculty of Public Health (FPH) is launching a revised version of Good Public Health Practice. This builds on the previous FPH publication Good Public Health Practice - General Professional Expectations of Public Health Professions (2008) and its application. It has been reviewed and updated as necessary in line with developments in professional practice and other relevant guidance.

The guidance provides the basis for good professional practice in public health. It applies to all members of the core public health workforce, including public health practitioners and specialists and those training to become practitioners and specialists.

The guidance is designed to:

  • Assist the public, public health professionals, colleagues and employers to better understand what good practice in public health should look like
  • Guide public health professionals when planning their continuing professional development
  • Act as a source document for public health professionals in preparing for appraisals and revalidation
  • Inform the framework within which public health professionals will be appraised and recommended for revalidation
  • Be a reference source whenever a person's registration or professional practice is called into question.

The 2016 version of Good Public Health Practice can be downloaded from the Good Practice page on the FPH website.
