The first ever Allied Health Professionals (AHP) Day was held on Monday 15 October 2018.

AHPs provide treatment and advice, and work with adults and children to help them recover from illness, or to support people who have disabilities or special needs, to live life as fully as possible. They work across a wide range of different settings including the community, people’s homes, schools and hospitals. Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) AHPs include dietitians, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, art therapists, drama therapists, radiographers and podiatrists.

The aim of the day was to celebrate, appreciate and recognise the extraordinary work of the AHP workforce. Colleagues at the Trust got together to support health and wellbeing with lunchtime walks, displays and activities and took the opportunity to share more about what they do by offering shadowing opportunities to Trust Board members and senior managers.

AHPs are vital members of teams across the Trust and work collaboratively with other health professionals to offer integrated services which aim to improve the health and wellbeing of the general population.

Rachel McKeown, Director of Allied Health Professionals at the Trust said: “This was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the contribution allied health professionals make together to the care and wellbeing of our patients. The skills and treatments they offer enhance and complement the whole range of services provided by MPFT and are an essential component of the integrated care we aim to offer to our patients.”
