Monday 14 October is Allied Health Professionals Day!

Today, Monday 14 October is Allied Health Professionals Day, a grassroots awareness day where health organisations and professional s across the country celebrate the work done across the NHS by allied health professionals (AHPs).

As the third largest workforce in the NHS, AHPs play a vital role in assessing, treating, diagnosing, and discharging patients for a wide range of conditions and illnesses.
