The wider public health workforce plays a vital role in supporting and delivering public health across a huge range of settings and can be broadly defined as “any individual who is not a specialist or practitioner in public health but has the opportunity or ability to positively impact health and wellbeing through their work”. Throughout 2023, RSPH has been engaging with the wider public health workforce to find out about the challenges they face and how they might be better supported around career development and delivering public health.

During this webinar, insight from the engagement, the key issues affecting the wider public health workforce – including career development and recognition will be discussed along with the solutions.
