Public Health Practitioner

'Public Health Practitioners' are key members of our public health workforce and have a great influence on the health and wellbeing of individuals, groups, communities and populations. They work across the full breadth of public health; from health improvement and health protection to health information, community development and nutrition.  

The term ‘Public Health Practitioner’ is usually designed to describe a level of practice, not a specific job role or type of job. In general terms a Practitioner will have 3 years plus of practice at AfC band 5 and above, Skills for Health levels 5-7.
