The public health workforce covers a diverse range of professional groups and includes those working in the NHS, national and local government, academic departments plus other health and care functions. Work is on-going to map the wider public health workforce to identify and support those working in the wider workforce of public health.
FPH survey of former public health registrars
During April and May 2016 the Speciality Registrar Committee (SRC) of the Faculty of Public Health (FPH) ran a national survey of former public health specialty registrars who had completed training since April 2013.
The survey looked at destinations and experience post-training, both professionally and geographically, to understand pathways into consultant positions and career choices, as well as the types of roles available to newly-qualified consultants and their working terms and conditions. It investigated where consultants felt they needed more support in their first roles and where training could be improved to better prepare registrars for future employment.
The SRC are grateful to the 98 recently-qualified consultants from across the UK who took part in the survey. The results will help inform developments in training and support for current and future consultants in public health.
FPH wishes to thank the SRC, and in particular Katie Ferguson and Alice Walker, for undertaking this work.
