Panoramic Associates are thrilled to announce the next session in our series: "Revalidation process for Independent Consultants in Public Health - Where to start". This will be taking place on Thursday 21st April at 8:15am, and we will be joined by Jessica Lichtenstein, Chief Executive of the UK Public Health Register / UK PHR.

At Panoramic Associates, we deliver specialist resource across the whole of the Public Sector, working with over 85% of local authorities across the UK.

We have been at the forefront of Public Health recruitment in recent years, in particular during the Covid-19 pandemic where our work was commended in our inclusion in the Times Fast Track 100 last year. With our large Public Health candidate base, our public health division have successfully connected with over 400 Public Health clients and we have made over 150 placements with 90 different public health recruiting managers.

As you are fully aware, Public Health Consultants must either have a UK PHR or GMC registration to have full Consultant status. Every 5 years, registered Consultants must go through a revalidation process in order to revalidate their UK PHR/GMC/GDC status.

We’ve been speaking with a lot of UK PHR registered Interim Consultants in Public Health recently who have shared that - because they don’t work directly for the system, they don’t have access to Professional Appraisers in the same way as Consultants in substantive employment. Therefore we have a network of independent/interim Consultants in Public Health who are wondering how other interims have overcome this and how they have navigated the system. People have said that they’d value from having a forum or network where they can share their tips and experiences on how they’ve navigated the system. This is where we have come in!

About our speaker, Jessica:

Jessica Lichtenstein is the Chief Executive of the UK Public Health Register. Jessica has a long track record in health regulation, most recently as Assistant Director at the General Medical Council (GMC), where she worked for 12 years in a number of roles.

This is the second of our ‘Breakfast Briefings’ that we will be holding. If there are any topic areas you feel would be a good topic of discussion for the future, please let me know as we would love to hear your thoughts!

*Please note that we don't pitch ourselves as experts in this field by any means, but we believe it would be beneficial to bring our public health network together*

We, at Panoramic Associates, thoroughly enjoy getting insights into our specialist market sectors, other organisations and perspectives. We run these events to build our collective knowledge and to provide opportunities to create a network of like-minded individuals.

Please get in touch at info@panoramicassociates.co.uk with any questions or suggestions on future virtual meetups.

Secondly, if you are a Professional Appraiser or Responsible Officer with current or upcoming capacity to complete appraisals, please get in touch with us on: 0117 332 8090 / m/collett@panoramicassociates.co.uk, or on m.hockings@panoramicassociates.co.uk, so we can share your details with our interim network.
