NHS England’s Chief Allied Health Professions Officer extends online workshop deadline:
There has been a fantastic response to the online workshop launched on 18 April 2016. So much so that we have had several requests to extend the deadline to give enough time for AHPs to share their views on how they will deliver future care in England.
Therefore the deadline for closure of the workshop has now been extended to midnight on the 6 May 2016, to give AHPs more time to have your say.
Thank you for sharing your ideas, comments and votes to two key questions:
- How will England be different if all AHPs were genuinely used effectively?
- What do you think AHPs need to stop, start or do differently to ensure they are ‘used’ effectively to help transform health and wellbeing in England?
As you know, the vision is to form a national declaration and programme of work which has been co-created and therefore will be co-owned by all AHPs. The aim is that it will support and drive AHPs transformative role in England’s health and care system.
You can register or log on at any time until midnight on the 6 May 2016.
Please encourage colleagues to have a voice also. You can do this using the ‘nominate a colleague’ function in the workshop.
I look forward to hearing the results of the analysis of the first stage of this programme of work when they are presented at the Chief Allied Health Professions Officer Conference on the 23 June #CAHPO16 . Following which the online workshop will be opened again to engage wider stakeholder groups including, people receiving AHP services, carers, other health care professionals, commissioners etc.
Thank you once again.
