It is the standard setting body for public health specialists within the United Kingdom, setting standards for training, examination and specialist practice across the four countries of the UK. It is also a source of knowledge and guidance around public health, and advocates for public health nationally and globally.

The current President is John Middleton, who took office in June 2016 for a three-year term.
