Update on Revalidation for Public Health Specialists registered with UKPHR

UKPHR and the Faculty of Public Health (FPH) are continuing to meet regarding the process of revalidation for UKPHR specialist registrants. As these registrants and stakeholders will be aware, a clearer understanding of the proposed statutory regulation of UKPHR specialist registrants and their pending transfer of their registration to the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) is awaited. Clarification will inform the next steps to establish revalidation.

Until such time, UKPHR registrants are required to continue with the system of re-registration involving satisfactory evidence of completion of an appraisal, an approved personal development plan, evidence of CPD, and a completed UKPHR application form.

UKPHR and FPH will provide further information on revalidation by the summer of 2014.
