Registration and revalidation survey results

UKPHR sought views from a range of sources to assist the organisation in settling policies relating to routes to registration (in relation to specialist registration) and revalidation (in relation to all registrants).

A response rate from registrants of 17 per cent was reasonable and provided UKPHR with a substantial amount of good-quality feedback and opinion.

There was solid support for the introduction of a revalidation scheme and for reviewing routes to registration in respect of specialist registration. There was also solid support for applying standards in relation to specialist registration that reflect the latest Specialty Training Programme Curriculum and, if and where appropriate, the revised Public Health Skills & Knowledge Framework.

The survey results and the individual comments provided will be taken into account in the work of the task & finish groups currently working on a revalidation scheme and a review of routes to registration for specialist registrants.
