Scoping exercise looks for Allied Health Professions in third sector

A national scoping exercise is being undertaken on behalf of NHS Education for Scotland in order to connect with Allied Health Professions (AHP) working within the care, independent or third sectors in Scotland.

NHS Education for Scotland are keen to make connections with AHP members across all sectors to provide support wherever they work and also to potentially modernise student experiences for professional practice.

These connections will enable them to widen their communication networks; plan for future workforce requirements; and help to connect members of the professions both locally and nationally.

The link to the survey and background information is:

They are seeking responses from the following professional groups: Art Therapists, Drama therapists, Music therapists, Chiropodists/Podiatrists, Dietitians, Occupational therapists, Orthoptists, Paramedics, Physiotherapists, Prosthetists/Orthotists, Diagnostic Radiographers/Therapeutic Radiographers and Speech and Language therapists.

They are also seeking to connect with individuals who are: Registered as an Allied Health Professional with HCPC in Scotland; deliver services/employed within the Care, Independent or Third Sectors; and their main employment/service delivery is not currently in NHS Scotland or a Local Authority.

All surveys should be completed by Friday March 22.
