The CSP is the largest of the 12 member organisations which make up the AHPF.

Mr Hitchcock will work with board members to develop the AHPF’s strategy and promote its policy recommendations to senior civil servants and government ministers.

'Strong, common voice'

'It is important for the allied health professions to have a strong, common voice when engaging through the AHPF with decision makers,' he said.

A former director of the TUC Partnership Institute, Mr Hitchcock has worked on strategy and policy development with the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and the College of Occupational Therapists.

Direct talking with decision makers

His role will be to build a platform for the professional organisations to work together more effectively and to boost their influence by talking directly to decision makers.

'We are about getting the voice of the professions heard. My job is to open a door and get the right people around the table,' Mr Hitchcock added.
