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.


Allied Health Professionals will demonstrate professionalism as defined by HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and Professional Body Codes of Conduct at all times and at all points of a service user's journey.

Rationale: People who use our services wish to be treated by staff who are competent - both technically and interpersonally - and demonstrate professionalism.

Service users can expect the Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) and AHP service providers to provide a professional service at all times.
