EPUT Allied Health Professionals

Welcome to our AHP Page!

Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) are highly valued and respected members of EPUT services. We have over 700 registered AHPs and support staff working across mental health, learning disability, specialist and community health services; in both community and inpatient settings. AHPs from a number of the 14 Professions, predominantly Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Dietitians and Podiatrists work in all geographical areas covered by EPUT and span three ICS boards with active AHP Councils and Faculties. Our AHPs are central to delivering high quality clinical pathways, patient safety and patient experience.

What we offer

As well as working as valued members of multidisciplinary teams, our AHPs benefit from strong AHP leadership and networks. We encourage AHPs to develop their careers in a number of ways, be it as clinical experts, professional or clinical leaders or in leading and developing quality initiatives and transformation.

We have recently launched a joint Nursing and AHP Strategy “Collaborating for care” focusing on collaborating with our nursing colleagues to deliver high quality, person centred care. We have a preceptorship programme which combines multiprofessional development with profession specific support.

We continue to focus on ensuring we have the right workforce with the right skills in the right place to deliver high quality care. If you would like an opportunity to restart a great career where you are valued, supported and given opportunities to develop and maximise your potential, we would love to have you join us.
