Allied Health Professions Scotland Consensus Statement on Quality Service Values

A consensus statement by the thirteen Allied Health Professions in Scotland on the minimum quality service values the people of Scotland can expect from Allied Health Professionals and Allied Health Professions service providers.

Policy context and strategic reference points

Allied Health Professionals are collectively recognised in the 2020 Vision and Strategic Narrative as having an important role to play in the transformation of health and social care services. The AHP Quality Service Values support AHPs from graduate level and above, across sectors, and are aligned with the Scottish Government 2020 Workforce Vision core values of care and compassion, dignity and respect, openness, honesty and responsibility, quality and teamwork.

Each of the AHP Quality Service Values can be viewed in accordance with the Triple Aim and the six Quality Outcomes as described in the Route Map to the 2020 Vision for Health and Social Care (Appendix 1).

Further strategic links are incorporated under each Quality Service Value. This is not intended as a definitive list but provides connection to key, overarching strategic documents and policy with relevance to Health, Social Care, Local Authorities and Third and Independent Sectors.
