An invitation for Allied Health Professions to co-create a vision of a possible future nation

14 April 2016

There is a mandate in England, right now, for the Allied Health Professions to co-create a vision of how, with collective action, our nation will be different if all AHPs were used effectively in the health, social and wider care system.

Your chance to shape our mandate for change! - A message from Suzanne Rastrick, NHS England’s Chief Allied Health Professions Officer.

NHS England’s Chief Allied Health Professions Officer explains how all 12 AHPs can work together to transform care of the future: 

There is a mandate in England, right now, for the Allied Health Professions to co-create a vision of how, with collective action, our nation will be different if all AHPs were used effectively in the health, social and wider care system.

On 18 April, all AHPs in England will be invited to take part in an online workshop to share views on how they can deliver future care in England – and this is for wherever they practice, not just the NHS. This is not just about the health service. It’s about local authorities, housing, private practices and the voluntary sectors too.

This online workshop will use crowdsourcing methodology to capture the voice of AHPs and, specifically, to form a national mandate for change that will support and drive AHPs transformative role in England’s health and care system.

This will be our chance to have a voice and co-create a mandate for change working towards common goals and challenges together.

We have collective agreement from the professional bodies of a need to engage AHPs to co-create and shape the vision for the future and an ‘ask’ from the wider system.

I urge all AHPs, both those within and out with NHS provider organisations to take part. This is an exciting opportunity for AHPs across England to co-create and co-own the vision of how AHPs can and will deliver future care in England.
