RSPH has over 150 years' experience in championing and supporting the wider public health workforce through education, training, and research. A skilled and well-trained workforce is essential for better public health, and one of the key commitments in our 2022-2027 Strategic Plan is to identify the needs of the wider workforce, where we can build on our support for them and what policy calls we can make on their behalf. This year, in the build-up to Public Health Workforce Week (2nd- 6th October), we’re engaging further with the wider public health workforce to gather insight into the challenges they face, and the solutions needed to support them.
UKHSA's flagship Conference will take place this year on Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 November, returning to the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.
The Introduction to Integrated Health Protection training course will be delivered under the leadership of the Champs Public Health Collaborative and UKHSA for colleagues in Cheshire and Merseyside. The course will focus on general health protection principles, and will aim to provide a strong overview of the practice and its benefits giving a good introduction to health protection for those who are new to this area of work, or as a refresher for those who need it.
