AHPs Day

AHP logo

Today we are celebrating the 4th annual Allied Health Professions (AHPs) Day.

AHPs are the third largest clinical workforce in the NHS, with significant opportunities to support delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan.

AHPs’ Day is an annual opportunity for AHPs to come together and celebrate being part of the AHP family, and the day gives an opportunity to showcase to others the impact they make to the delivery of high-quality care.

The collaborations in services, organisations, trusts, regions and nationally enable:

• Improved awareness of the role of the fourteen allied health professions
• Showcasing the achievements of local services and their impact on patient care and population health
• Integrated working with other services and organisations.

Events taking place throughout the day

The Chief Allied Health Professions Officer (CAHPO) delivered a live address to the AHP workforce at 9:30am this morning. To get a copy of the recording of the address, you can email nhsi.ahpteam@nhs.net which will have an automated response set up giving you details on how to access it.
