The North West Allied Health Professions (AHP) Council provides a strategic advisory and action group on AHP workforce and transformation across the region. It supports the development of safe, effective and responsive services by:

  • Supporting the implementation, adoption and spread of national and regional priorities for AHP workforce and services to support improvements in population health, patient outcomes and service delivery.
  • Providing timely strategic advice and intelligence on AHP workforce supply and transformation to HEE, NHS England and NHS Improvement, STPs/ICSs and local stakeholders.
  • Supporting AHP leadership capacity and capability within the region.
  • Enabling support and collaboration across the region, with effective links to the Chief AHP Officer and national AHP leadership team.  

As an advisory body to HEE and other stakeholders for over 10 years, it provides a regional approach to supporting regional and national workforce priorities. This includes the support of the wider North West AHP Network in providing professional and clinical expertise across the system.
