Blog: Allied Health Professionals Day 2023

Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) celebrated their 6th annual AHPs’ Day on 14 October 2023. AHP Day is a yearly occasion for AHPs in England and now internationally to unite and revel in their contribution. AHP Day offers a platform to spotlight the remarkable impact AHPs have on the delivery of care.

The Humber and North Yorkshire (HNY) AHP Faculty would like to take this opportunity to celebrate its achievements in the last 12 months.

AHP Faculties play a key role in helping shape the next generation of AHPs by coordinating activities to support their supply, education, and training. The AHP Faculty model provides the infrastructure to facilitate system-wide working between health and care providers and Higher Education Institutes (HEIs). Humber and North Yorkshire AHP Faculty have worked on several initiatives, including International Recruitment, Careers Fayres, Retention and Recruitment, Workforce Development, Support Workers and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

As the third-largest clinical workforce within health and care, AHPs are pivotal in supporting the NHS Long Term Plan.

AHPs in the right place, at the right time, with the right skills was the theme for this year’s AHP day, linking with the NHS Long Term Workforce Plan and AHPs Deliver. AHPs work collaboratively across the different pathways and organisations in our system. Follow us on Twitter @hnyahpfaculty, where we will showcase how AHPs make a difference in patient care and inspire the future workforce. 

AHP Day embraces all members of the AHP community across all organisations. Whether you’re a support worker, assistant practitioner, registered professional, pre-registration apprentice, or a dedicated student, you’re at the heart of this celebration. Yet it doesn’t stop there; anyone who recognises and works collaboratively and acknowledges the remarkable contributions of AHPs and those eager to explore the world of these exceptional professions is warmly welcomed.
