Benefits of practitioner registration
We register practitioners who have demonstrated their competence in public health practice. In this way, the public, employers and commissioners of public health services know that practitioners who are registered are safe and effective in what they do. Registration provides assurance, public protection and recognition of achievement.
To registered practitioners
Registered practitioners benefit through securing objective recognition of their achievements, maintaining and enhancing their competence and developing future career options.
To employers and commissioners
Employers and commissioners of public health services benefit through relying on a process which meets their due diligence requirements. Registration signals that the practitioner is competent and fully understands the essentials of the public health role. We want more employers and commissioners to specify that registration is a required quality standard.
To the public
The public benefits through knowing that competence, integrity and accountability in public health practice is assured, it can be checked for on a public register – and there is someone to complain to if things go wrong.
