Launch of Allied Health Professionals Vision

Allied Health Professions (AHPs) in DCHS have co-produced our DCHS AHP Vision. 

Did you know we have six different professions that come under the AHP umbrella – physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists, speech and language therapists, paramedics and operating department practitioners. There's more information about our AHPs in our AHP Vision here. This two-sided document will also tell you where our AHP workforce want to be in the future; and how they want to help shape Derbyshire services. 

If you work with AHPs, want to know more about AHPs or you’re a leader whose remit includes AHPs – please have a look. We encourage you to discuss it with your AHP colleagues and use it to inform individual or team objectives.

Mary Heritage is the assistant director for AHPs and is keen to come and talk to any team or individual about how the AHP Vision can enable transformation in your area. Please feel free to contact Mary on E: mary.heritage@nhs.net, T: 07500605505 or @maryheritage on Twitter.
