Outline for Workforce Education and Development for Public Health Microbiology in Scotland

Publication Date: 01 September 2019

​​​​The ‘Outline for Workforce Education and Development for Public Health Microbiology in Scotland’ has been developed as a key component of ‘A Public Health Microbiology Strategy for Scotland’ and contributes to the delivery of public health priorities and reform currently being taken forward in Scotland.

As ‘A Public Health Microbiology Strategy for Scotland’ states, “Scotland is in an unrivalled position to create a public health microbiology service providing world-renowned expertise and leadership”. 

This Outline offers a basis from which the workforce that contributes to public health microbiology can develop local planning as part of wider workforce education and development planning for facilitating, delivering and evaluating educational activity for all staff and engage with nationally produced resources to help ensure this aspiration becomes a reality.
