Allied Health Professionals (AHP)

AHPs play a key role within Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Find out more about the different AHP career pathways, including the different roles, qualifications, apprenticeships and more below.

There are 15 allied health professional roles, including physiotherapist, prosthetist and therapeutic radiographer just to name a few. And they all have one thing in common: they play a vital part in treating, rehabilitating and improving the lives of patients.

As an allied health professional, you’ll be able to help patients in ways that few other healthcare professionals can. You’ll work alongside a multidisciplinary team of doctors and nurses, in a range of settings, as you help patients overcome obstacles, both mentally and physically.

Being an allied health professional isn’t just emotionally rewarding. With ongoing training, you’ll be able to quickly progress, moving to more senior positions with a higher pay grade.

“I had an early interest in working with football clubs as a Physiotherapist as it would have combined two of my greatest passions, but I think my university placements influenced my field of interest, like working in the community at present."

"I was interested in a career in healthcare but I didn’t want to be a nurse.  It was my Nan who gave me a newspaper article about podiatry and I thought I would like to have a look at doing that because it was something different.  My Dad inspired me to become a Rheumatology Specialist because he is a Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferer and so I know what a patient with this condition goes through and how it affects the whole family."
