What can you expect to do as part of a typical working week in the NHS?

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.
