Report highlights practitioners listed on Accredited Registers are an untapped resource in tackling public health challenges

The FHT welcomes a joint report published today by the Professional Standards Authority and Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), which highlights how more than 80,000 practitioners listed on Accredited Registers – including more than 10,000 FHT members – are able to contribute to improving public health.

The report, based on a survey of over 4,500 listed on Accredited Registers (ARs), also looks at some of the barriers that prevent these practitioners from doing more to support the health of the nation, and provides some recommendations to help them realise their full potential.

Shirley Cramer CBE, Chief Executive of RSPG, comments, ‘We know that AR practitioners typically take a holistic approach to wellbeing, and develop long-term and trusted relationships with their patients, putting them in an ideal position to have lifestyle health conversations with them. The AR workforce accounts for thousands of interactions with members of the public every day: we are calling for these practitioners to be given the right support, so that we can unleash their full potential to improve the public’s health.’

Our thanks to those FHT members who completed the survey and contributed to this report.
