Cheshire and Merseyside AHP Faculty Webinar: Weaving Our Tapestry
Wednesday 21 October 2020, 01:00pm - 02:00pm

The event will provide an update about how the Cheshire and Merseyside Allied Heatlh Professions (AHP) Faculty is coming together after being established mid-June 2020. This will be hosted by Nisha Agarwal, Project Lead, Cheshire and Merseyside AHP Faculty and we will have a message from the Chair of the Faculty, Caroline Dawn who is also the Head of Therapy Services and AHP Lead, St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

We will be providing an update on our first faculty project looking at standardising the post graduate professional development of specialist physiotherapists and unifying the workforce to provide flexibility in times of pressure, with special guests talking about the workstreams within the project.

  • Creating a share job description for band 6 physiotherapists - Liz Waters, The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust
  • Creating a specialist physiotherapy skills passport - Laura Plant, East Cheshire NHS Trust
  • Cross organisation rotations - Angela McAvoy, Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust 
  • Creating a flexible workforce to meet the needs of service users in times of crisis - Vicky Carr, North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust & Viki Hunt, St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Finally we will introduce our next project which will be looking at clinical placement expansion by the introduction of a hybrid supervision model, the development of a virtual training hub and utilising the untapped knowledge in our workforce.

After the update there will be a chance for a short Q&A session.
