Untapped Resources: Accredited Registers in the Wider Workforce

01 Nov 2017 | Royal Society for Public Health and Professional Standards Authority

A joint report with the Royal Society for Public Health looking at how accredited registers' practitioners can make a significant contribution to promoting and protecting the public's health

This joint report reveals the extent to which practitioners on accredited registers can contribute to addressing the growing public health crises in the UK. The report, which is based on a survey of more than 4,500 practitioners in the accredited registers workforce, found both a willingness and ability to promote the public’s health through healthy lifestyle conversations and effective signposting with patients. The report also outlines some of the barriers which stop the UK making the most of the accredited registers' workforce.
