According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), 5.77 million people are employed in the UK’s public sector – accounting for around a sixth of all those in paid work (September 2022). It’s clear that it’s a huge source of employment, but what exactly is the public sector? In a nutshell, the public sector is responsible for providing all public services in the UK, including: education; emergency services; healthcare; housing; refuse collection; security; and social care. In this area you will learn about how public services work together to deal with emergency incidents and put together a coordinated plan to deal with a crisis.
