Background

The Public Health Skills and Knowledge Framework (PHSKF) was developed through collaborative efforts of lead agencies in Public Health across the UK and first published in 2008 as the Public Health Skills and Careers Framework.

In Spring 2015 NHS Health Scotland engaged the public health workforce to contribute to the National Consultation tasked with updating and producing a revised framework.

The purpose of this event was to present the revised 2016 Public Health Skills and Knowledge Framework and help stimulate conversation with key national and local stakeholders to consider what this revised framework means for us in Scotland.

The revised framework has been produced through collaborative efforts of the lead agencies across the UK including NHS Health Scotland, Public Health England, Public Health Wales and the Public Health Agency of Northern Ireland.

The Scottish Public Health Workforce Development Group is committed to supporting this event.

Event aim

The aim of the event was:

  • to provide information about the revised Public Health Skills and Knowledge Framework
  • to give attendees the opportunity to contribute to what this means for us in Scotland
  • to help the thinking of the Scottish Public Health Workforce Development Group

At this event we considered the question “What does the revised framework mean for us in Scotland in terms of opportunities and challenges?’’

Presentations included updates from Andrew Fraser, Chair of Scottish Public Health Workforce Development Group and Claire Cotter, Public Health England who offered insights into the developments of the framework so far across the UK.
