Scotland celebrates AHP Awareness Week

25 February 2011 - 12:31pm

An event celebrating the contribution of allied health professionals to health and social care was held at the Scottish parliament last night as part of AHP Awareness Week.

The reception was organised by the Allied Health Professions Federation Scotland (AHPF Scotland) and hosted by Mary Scanlon MSP, a member of the Scottish parliament’s health and sport committee.

Representatives of professional bodies from across the allied health professions, including the CSP, attended the event, along with MSPs, clinicians and service users.


Diversity of the AHPs


Kenryck Lloyd-Jones, CSP policy officer for Scotland, said : ‘Too often, the professions associated with care and treatments are the “doctors and nurses”. The AHPF Scotland event was an opportunity to reveal the diversity of the allied health professions and their value to service users.’

AHP Awareness Week (21–25 February) is run by the chief health professions officer and backed by the Scottish government. It aims to recognise and celebrate the essential role and contribution of the allied health professions to the wider health sector in Scotland.
