Allied Health Professionals

Allied health professionals (AHPs) provide treatment and help rehabilitate adults and children who are ill, have disabilities or special needs, to live life as fully as possible. They work across a wide range of different settings including the community, people’s homes and schools, as well as hospitals. They often work in the independent sector and for charities. If you are looking for a career that combines a challenge, an excellent employment package and the reward of doing something really worthwhile, the allied health professions offer a wide range of opportunities.

On this page you will find two resources:

  • Supporting you to become an AHP
  • Career development opportunities for qualified AHPs
