AHP day is a social movement and an appreciation day for the 14 Allied Health Professions. It is a chance to celebrate and promote the work of AHPs throughout the country
There are 14 AHPs and together they make up the 3rd largest workforce in the NHS. The 14 professions are:
Arts Therapists, Drama Therapists, Dietitians, Music Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Operating Department Practitioners, Orthoptists, Osteopaths, Paramedics, Podiatrists, Physiotherapists, Radiographers, Speech and Language Therapists and of course us Prosthetists & Orthotists
AHP Day will happen on Monday 15th October throughout the UK and can be celebrated by anyone – not just AHPs!
You can celebrate and be involved in #AHPday in any way you like and there are many ideas on how to get involved with #AHPday on social media but to get started and to help our members promote P&O BAPO have produced a series of free downloadable publicity documents including posters, bunting and our careers guide.
