Allied Health Professions Day is on Thursday 14 October 2021.
What is Allied Health Professions Day?
Allied Health Professions (AHPs) Day is an annual opportunity for AHPs to come together and celebrate being part of the AHP family. It is also an opportunity to showcase to others the impact AHPs make to the delivery of high quality care. The collaborations in services, organisations, trusts, regions and nationally enable:
- improved awareness of the role of the fourteen allied health professions
- showcasing achievements of local services and their impact on patient care and population health
- integrated working with other services and organisations.

In Conversation with Clare McCarroll
We will be holding an "In Conversation" event with Physiotherapy alumni Clare McCarroll.
Clare was awarded a British empire medal (BEM) in recognition of her services to the NHS during the Covid-19 response as Team Lead at the Integrated Community Reablement Service at Merseycare NHS Foundation Trust. Clare and her team carry out invaluable work to provide care and support to patients who have been discharged from hospital. The team also visits patients who require care at home, helping avoid unnecessary hospital admissions.
