AHPs day was first held in England in 2018 and is now an international event celebrating and bringing together the allied health professional community.
Allied health professionals have been working on the frontline in hospitals in Australia’s response to COVID-19 and adapting to new methods of service delivery in primary care. From the ICU to community-based rehabilitation, allied health professionals have an important role to play in physical and mental recovery for COVID-19 survivors.
We thank all allied health professionals for the work they are doing in contributing to COVID-19 recovery for individuals and for the ongoing care they are continuing to provide the broader community throughout the pandemic.
We also encourage you to join us in supporting AHPs Day 2021, and raising awareness of the allied health sector by sharing your own social media posts, such as photos of staff events marking the occasion, profiles of allied health teams and practitioners, and videos highlighting the work of different professions.
Don’t forget to include event hashtags such as #AHPsDay #AHPsDay2021 #strongertogether #alliedhealth
