Allied Health Professions (AHP) Day – 14th October

13 October, 2022

Friday 14th October is Allied Health Professions (AHP) Day. AHPs are the third largest healthcare workforce, 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.
