AHPs as agents of change in health and social care - The National Delivery Plan for the Allied Health Professions in Scotland, 2012 - 2015

The National Delivery Plan will apply to AHPs from across Health and Social Care and it will provide a strategic platform for future AHP activity, demonstrating the contribution and impact that AHPs can and do have on the delivery of national policy. It sets out a range of actions which require AHPs to be more visible, accountable, and demonstrate impact to the organisation and communities they serve.

Next steps

The National Delivery Plan for the Allied Health Professions in Scotland sets out a roadmap on how AHPs can add value to the evolution of health and social care services and contribute to reshaping and redesigning services around individuals, families and carers

To drive this forward, the following steps will be taken in the short term:

  • a set of resources to support implementation of the National Delivery Plan will be developed and disseminated by the Chief Health Professions Officer
  • AHP directors will be responsible for developing and delivering local implementation plans, embedding actions within local delivery plans and community planning processes, including the Change Fund initiatives
  • the Chief Health Professions Officer will monitor implementation and continue to provide support.
