A suite of Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) public health infographics were published on Friday 13 October 2023 as part of AHPs Day celebrations. We worked with the Royal Society for Public Health and 14 AHP professional bodies to describe public health in the context of each individual profession. This work included conversations with many AHPs and AHP support workers as well as desktop research. The infographics summarise AHP public health roles in the words of members of each profession. These descriptors have purposely been kept concise and presented them as infographics so they represent a sample rather than an exhaustive list. For those who want more information, there is also a handbook describing in more detail the contribution of each profession including links to case studies.
Huge thanks to the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and everyone involved in developing these profession specific descriptor infographics. The RSPH have also published a blog by Linda Hindle and Kanar Ahmed to promote publication of the infographics which you can read here.

We support AHP Teams to think about the different ways they can and already do improve and protect the public’s health; as well as giving other colleagues a flavour of the work AHPs do as part of the wider public health workforce.
