We are seeking two new Directors to appoint to our Board in 2017

Due to retirements, UKPHR seeks to appoint two new Directors to its Board before the end of 2017.

UKPHR has set out in its Role Descriptor for Directors the requirements applicants for appointment will need to demonstrate and through its Role Descriptor for the Board, its requirements for Board members.


UKPHR is a private company limited by guarantee and a registered Charity. It was established in 2003 as a voluntary register for multidisciplinary public health Specialists. It has since developed to be the register of Specialty Registrars and public health Practitioners also. Its register is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

UKPHR’s primary objective is to protect the public by ensuring that only competent public health professionals are registered. We aim to ensure that registrants maintain high standards of practice after achieving registration, for example through our CPD requirements and re-registration, which will soon become revalidation.
