Practitioner Training

Public health practitioners are key members of the public health workforce. They can have a great influence on the health and well-being of individuals, groups, communities and populations. Working across the full breadth of public health in a wide range of settings, from the NHS and local government to the voluntary, and private sectors they work on health improvement, health protection, health information, community development and nutrition.

The Wessex Public Health Practitioner Scheme offers a support programme for individuals to develop their portfolio for registration with the UK Public Health Register (UKPHR).

This section of our website gives information on how we deliver the programme in Wessex.

We are proud to be supported by our Public Health Development Leads who can be your point of contact when you wish to express an interest in the programme. Their details are below:
