LCO Allied Health Professionals Strategy Launch

Introducing Manchester and Trafford Local Care Organisations Allied Health Professionals (AHP) Strategy 2022 -2025.

The strategy has been developed in partnership with all of our AHP staff who have been actively engaged in telling us what is important to them now and in the future. AHPs are: art therapists, drama therapists, music therapists, chiropodists and podiatrists, dietitians, occupational therapists, operating department practitioners, orthoptists, osteopaths, paramedics, physiotherapists, prosthetists and orthotists, diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers, and speech and language therapists.

The NHS Long Term Plan, The People Plan and AHPs into Action all acknowledge the importance of AHPs in meeting the demands of the NHS. It has never been a more important time to focus on the AHP workforce and ensure it is equipped with the skills, opportunities and resources to meet the challenges we face today.

The strategy identifies five clear priorities, which have been committed into actions over the next three years.

The AHP Leadership team is looking forward to working with all our AHP staff in the delivery of this strategy to support the excellent care provided for our patients and their families every day.
