Geographical remit: 


RSPH is an independent, multi-disciplinary charity dedicated to the improvement of the public’s health and wellbeing.

Formed in October 2008 with the merger of the Royal Society of Health and the Royal Institute of Public Health, we help inform policy and practice, working to educate, empower and support communities and individuals to live healthily.

Our vision is that everyone has the opportunity to optimise their health and wellbeing.


Public health encompasses all aspects of health protection and health promotion and this is reflected throughout our projects, policy work, reports and campaigns.

  • Membership: We have a membership of over 6,000 public health professionals encompassing a wide range of sectors and roles including health promotion, medicine, environmental health and food safety trainers
  • Qualifications: Our network of centres enable over 70,000 people each year to achieve qualifications in subjects as diverse as food hygiene, health and safety, behaviour change, health improvement and nutrition. 
  • Conferences and training: We offer a wide range of conferences, seminars, events and training in water hygiene, infection control, mental wellbeing and occupational medicine and more
  • Accreditation: We provide an accreditation service for public health training programmes and campaigns
