Thanks to our Allied Health Professionals
We will be celebrating AHPs Day by shouting about the difference AHP’s make to our patient’s lives. The day has been set up as a social movement to recognise the contribution of AHPs to patient care and population health, and a chance to get to know and celebrate the skills and achievements of AHPs.
AHPs form the third largest clinical workforce in health and social care in England. They provide high quality care to patients and clients across a wide range of care pathways and in a variety of settings that include, hospitals, community, the independent and charitable sectors and schools. They work in partnership with health and social care colleagues across primary, secondary and social care, as well as in the independent and voluntary sectors.
There are 14 types of AHP roles and NCH&C employs a number of these including chiropodists/podiatrists, dietitians, occupational therapists, osteopaths, physiotherapists, prosthetists and orthotists, and speech and language therapists.
