Allied Health Professionals (AHPs)
Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) provide services for people across the life course, so have a crucial role to play in all areas of care, to improve the health and wellbeing of the general population.

LPFT AHPs work collaboratively, within multi-professional teams across the Trust.

- High quality care
- Education: developing the Lincolnshire AHP workforce for now and the future
