Shaping the future of health and care Written by Mary Ferguson on Thursday 25th of March 2021. Members of the public are being urged to share their views on healthcare as part of the online AHP Listen event. The aim is to co-create a new strategy for how Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) can support people, in line with the NHS Long Term Plan. The conversation can be accessed by any device that can access the internet. It is available 24/7 while the conversation is open (until the end of March). All contributions are anonymous so people can share their ideas and views honestly and freely. Click here to find out more. Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) work across all aspects of healthcare. There are 14 distinct professional groups including: art therapists, dietitians, drama therapists, music therapists, occupational therapists, operating department practitioners, orthoptists, osteopaths, paramedics, physiotherapists, podiatrists, prosthetists and orthotists, diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers, and speech and language therapists.
