Health Education England Public Health Workforce Survey
The aim of this data collection tool is to capture the size and composition of the public health specialist workforce (everyone on the specialist register regardless of their job title, e.g. including ‘Consultant’ which is the commonly used job title within the NHS) as of 1st October 2021.
The data collection tool has three objectives:
- support commissioning on public health specialists by monitoring trends in Director of Public Health and Public Health Specialist numbers.
- improve annual HEE commissioning of specialist training places for public health and dental public health;
- support improvements in data collection methods for public health professionals across the system.
