Celebrating AHPs Day 2020!

Today is AHPs Day, a day that celebrates the wonderful contribution of Allied Health Professionals to the NHS. We’re taking the chance to highlight the wonderful work of the AHP team on Ward 35! 

We have recently worked with the RVI to help fund a brand new team of AHPs on the Neonatal Unit. This includes Occupational Therapists, a Dietician and Physiotherapists. The additional funding from Tiny Lives will allow the team to spend more time on the Unit and to complete relevant projects and training to better help Neonatal families. Click through the links below to meet the team!

We’d also like to give a special mention to Catherine, the Speech and Language Therapist (SALT) on the Neonatal Unit (her role is not funded by Tiny Lives). Catherine plays a pivotal role in the AHP team on Ward 35, and can advise on issues with swallowing, feeding and weaning. 

What is an Allied Health Professional?

The Allied Health Professions (AHPs) are the third largest workforce in the NHS.  They provide system-wide care to assess, treat, diagnose and discharge patients. Their main focus is on prevention and improvement of health and wellbeing. Find out more.
