There is no plan to make an assessment of the merits of the recommendations in the report ‘Untapped Resources: Accredited Registers in the Wider Workforce’.

In 2016, Public Health England (PHE) published a report on this subject entitled ‘Fit for the Future: Public Health People’. Further information is available here:
