The Defined Specialist Register is key to Public Health increasingly influencing the whole Health and Wellbeing agenda. Professor Sir Michael Marmot has identified a broad and daunting agenda for Public Health to address. It will be essential to populate the general Public Health workforce with specialists in particular areas of Health and Wellbeing improvement which require more specialised skills. This document demonstrates the importance for all Public Health agencies of identifying specific, and well as general, challenges in their health economy and focussing on them. The Defined Register offers an increasing pool of such specialist support.
Many Public Health employers have not had the opportunity to work with defined specialists and to experience the added value that they bring to delivering Public Health services. For this reason we have written two documents which showcase defined specialists and their work. These documents are available to download. Both clearly describe defined specialists including their knowledge, skills and high level contribution to Public Health.
We will be exhibiting a poster regarding practitioner registration at the Health Protection Conference at Warwick University on the 11-12 September 2012. Please do come and visit if you want to discuss registration further.
