Using Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) to transform health, care and wellbeing.

AHPs into Action’ has been formally launched today by NHS England.

‘AHPs into Action’ is a vision of how, with collective action, our nation would be different if all AHPs were used effectively. Aimed at leaders and decision makers, to help them understand the transformative potential and role of AHPs within the health, social and wider care system.

‘AHPs into Action’ describes how AHPs can support the delivery of Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) and the triple aims set out in the Five Year Forward View. It is a resource to inform and inspire AHPs, leaders and decision makers across the health and care system, offering:

  • A clear view of the transformative potential of AHPs
  • Fifty three examples of innovative AHP practice – including a number from the North West
  • A framework to help develop local delivery plans

You can download and share ‘AHPs into Action’, and find information on how it was co-produced with patients, carers, the public, and health and care staff including AHPs, on the NHS England website. Join can also in the conversation on Twitter at #AHPsintoAction.

The formal launch of AHPs into Action takes place in London this afternoon. The launch will be live streamed and you can watch live or afterwards – full details on how to do this are available from the WeCommunities.
