Welcome to the Allied Health Professions Federation
The Allied Health Professions Federation (AHPF) provides collective leadership and representation on common issues that impact on its member professions. The AHPF is well placed to ensure that health, social care and education decision makers understand the unique contribution of the allied health professions.
The overall purpose of the AHPF is to promote inter-professional working enabling Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) to provide high quality care for patients and their carers across the whole of the health and social care sectors.
The AHPF is a UK wide organisation and has management boards in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The AHPF Boards work to a shared agenda with delivery activity tailored to the unique context offered by each country.
The AHPF is currently focusing on the following themes:
- AHPs, both as specialist clinicians and clinical leaders, are key to the delivery of a high quality patient-centred service delivered at the right investment level to enable it to be sustainable
- AHPs are key to delivering a care service along complete care pathways
- Care pathways cross boundaries and are not just about traditional health services but may include other social care environments such as education, justice and local government. AHPs working across these boundaries are in a position to deliver optimum productivity gains
- Empowered AHPs can lead change and service transformation
AHPs are key to inspiring individuals to take a preventative approach to long term health
