Welcome to the Allied Health Professions Federation

The Allied Health Professions Federation (AHPF) comprises twelve professional bodies representing Allied Health Professionals (AHPs). The AHPF provides collective leadership and representation on common issues that impact its members’ professions.

The AHPF is governed by a board of national Chief Executives and Chairs from each of the twelve member bodies. This board is chaired by an independent Chair. The AHPF Board annually reviews work plans for AHPF Northern Ireland and Scotland, which share the same purpose of collective leadership and accordingly allocates an annual budget for them to deliver their work plan. The AHPF does not have specific arrangements for Wales, where the allied health professions and health scientists have their own statutory and informal arrangements for coordination.

There are 152,000 AHPs working across all health and social care settings including hospitals, people’s homes, clinics, surgeries, the justice system, local authorities, private and voluntary sectors and primary, secondary and tertiary education.

AHPs focus on consistent, person-centred, preventative and therapeutic care for children and adults. They are accredited and trustworthy professionals performing a crucial function in the NHS and social care. The breadth and depth of AHP skills and reach make them ideally placed to lead and support transformative changes.

The AHPF's Vision is that the AHP workforce is positioned to improve the mental and physical health and well-being of the population.

The AHPF's Mission is that the Federation provides collective AHP leadership and representation to influence national policy and guidance at a strategic level.

Current AHPF strategic priorities are:

• Workforce 
• Service Transformation/The future of Healthcare 
• Visibility of AHPs/Leadership
