Have you got a change idea that, with the support of a network, could deliver quality improvement in your area of practice?
Do you want to be part of a small network of advocates that will be recognised for leading public health innovation and driving change in your area of practice?
AHPs4PH was developed in 2016 as a community of interest for Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) and their teams. The group provides a platform to share and promote good practice, stay up to date with current policy and guidance and ultimately, help equip AHPs to improve the health of the public. The AHPs4PH team developed the AHPs4PH Advocates campaign. The scheme which ran for the first time last year, consisted of selected AHPs being supported to deliver a service improvement (SI) project related to Public Health using recognised quality improvement (QI) framework within their service. This year AHPs4PH have the support of NHS Improvement to run the Advocates scheme again using a 30, 60, 90 day collaborative approach and the model for improvement.
