UKPHR have launched revalidation for specialist registrants.
UKPHR’s Board have approved changes to the revalidation scheme for practitioner registrants and the necessary arrangements are being made before the piloting of the scheme takes place and the revalidation scheme is implemented.
In many ways re-registration is already a form of revalidation but UKPHR has studied revalidation systems relevant to some other healthcare professionals and concluded that a more formal revalidation scheme is a necessary development. This is so that the public, registrants and registrants’ employers and commissioners can continue to be assured that public health professionals who are registered do keep up their knowledge and competence and continue to be fit to practise.
The requirements for revalidation are not retrospective and only apply from1st April 2019 onwards.
