Joint statement on professional appraisal and revalidation in local authorities in England

Public Health England (PHE) and  the Standing Group on Local Public Health Teams have published a joint statement outlining the part that professional appraisal and revalidation play in ensuring the ongoing quality of specialist public health practice.

It outlines the systems (statutory or otherwise), that are in place to help local government employers to ensure that registered public health specialists they employ maintain the high standards of professional practice needed to fulfil their role of improving and protecting the health of local people.

 It also sets out what the legal requirements are for these professionals to be able to practise and what support is available for employers where they have concerns about professional practice.
