Allied Health Professionals (AHP)

AHP's Day 14th October 2021

The Office of the Chief Allied Health Professions Officer would like to share with you a communications brief and resources that will support you to promote and share about the day within your own organisations. These have now been saved to the resource library of this workspace.

AHP’s Day is a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of AHPs and the AHP Community, as well as showcase the impact and contribution AHPs make towards compassionate, high quality and person-centred care. 

We encourage you to access the additional AHPs’ Day resources available to you within the AHP’s Day virtual network. Within this space we encourage you to share ideas about your own local and regional plans for AHP’s Day, drawing inspiration from each other and finding opportunities to connect in plans.
