Allied health professionals

There are various allied health professional (AHP) groups working within UHS although not all are directly employed by UHS. They don't just work in the hospital environment but in clinics, people's homes, schools and they work alongside other professionals such as GPs, hospital doctors, teachers and social workers.

Allied health professionals have particular skills and expertise to help people overcome illness and disabilities or have special needs and need help with day to day living.
