Working in the NHS as an Allied Health Professional gives you acess to excellent job opportunities, career progression, competitive pay and the oportunity to work for one of the best healthcare systems in the world!
With such a wide range of skill sets, each AHP role is different. What all the roles share is a commitment to the individual patient, with AHPs at ease interacting with people as treatment progresses.
Despite working as part of a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT), across all life stages, within all sectors, AHPs make independent assessments and decisions about treatment. At the frontline of the NHS, AHPs work directly with patients, one to one and in small groups, and as part of a vast network delivering healthcare.
Allied health professionals in the UK form the 3rd largest workforce in the NHS. It is an exciting time to be an AHP, with increased opportunities across all areas of treatment and rehabilitation for adults and children.
AHPs work across a wide range of care pathways, including A&E, paediatrics and end-of-life care, and in different settings including the community, people’s homes and schools, as well as hospitals. Each of the allied health professions brings specialist knowledge and skills that are unique to their job.
The 14 allied health professions are: art therapists, drama therapists, music therapist,
chiropodists/podiatrists, dietitians, occupational therapists, operating department practitioners, orthoptists, osteopaths, paramedics, physiotherapists, prosthetists and orthotists, radiographers, speech and language therapists.
