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.
AHPs are the third largest workforce within the NHS, and there are 14 different professions which hold the title of AHP.
Within LPFT, AHPs include:
- Occupational Therapists
- Speech Language Therapists
- Art Therapists
- Music Therapists
- Drama Therapists
- AHP Support Staff
LPFT AHPs work collaboratively, within multi-professional teams across the Trust.
A Lincolnshire AHP Strategic Forum, which brings together Lead AHPs and uni-professional leads from across organisations in Lincolnshire, has a Strategic Plan which focuses on the following objectives:
- High quality care
- Education: developing the Lincolnshire AHP workforce for now and the future
- Recruitment and Retention: Creating a sustainable AHP community in Lincolnshire
- Innovation and research
- Recognising, valuing and celebrating excellence in Lincolnshire
Our #BeYouLPFT campaign highlights the importance of being your authentic self. We want to celebrate the diversity of our workforce by shining a light on the different lives we each lead and the hobbies and activities we enjoy, whilst also showcasing how we all come together to form Team LPFT and do the amazing work we do each and every day.
