Allied Health Professions

With over 2000 Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) working across services in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw, the AHP workforce is the third largest staff group across the Shadow Integrated Health and Care System (SYB ICS). The term ‘AHP’ is a broad one and
represents a number of highly skilled staff who work across a broad range of services, often acting as a crucial bridge for patients in their health and care journey. Given their links across all sectors, AHPs are vital to supporting and achieving the overall ambition of the SYB ICS to give people the best possible start in life, with the support to stay healthy and live well for
longer.

An AHP strategy for Health and Care Working Together in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw (the SYB ICS) has been developed through work with all partners and a broad cross-section of AHPs. The strategy describes how the AHP workforce will work collectively to ensure all services – across community, primary and secondary care – are utilising the skills and capability of AHPs in the best possible way to meet the needs of our patients, which in turn,
will support the streamlining of services, reduce duplication and variation and provide innovative and integrated solutions for demand in other areas of our health and care system. This will be at both a local (Place) and a regional level. Read the Strategy here.


Plans are underway to establish an AHP Council (the draft Terms of Reference of which can be seen here) as an advisory group to drive the aims of improving the health and wellbeing of the region, supporting primary and secondary care, working across boundaries and delivering evidence based best practice solutions. The AHP Council, who will link in with the Collaborative Partnership Board of the ICS, will provide valuable perspective and expertise to influence the development of new models of care.


The AHP workforce is a key enabler to support the SYB ICS to achieve its vision and transformation in health and care.


This strategy will be launched in draft to 150 AHPs from the region on Thursday 26 April 2018. The agenda for the launch event can be found here.
