AHPs into action

Allied health care professionals and support workers

In 2017 HEE published its first strategy – Allied health professions (AHPs) into action, which identified the transformative potential of AHPs and provided a framework demonstrating how the AHP workforce could support the NHS.

As AHPs it set out our collective commitments and priorities to deliver significant impacts for patients, their carers, and communities. Two years later, the NHS Long Term Plan committed to “further develop the national AHP strategy, AHPs into action, to focus on the delivery of the Long Term Plan”.

After strategy development was paused in 2020 in response to the COVID pandemic, work has now resumed and the strategy to replace AHPs into action is currently being created.
