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 identify what matters most to service users and will use this information to guide service provision and outcomes.

Allied Health Professional services will support provision of equitable, quality care and support to all service users, across service users' contexts and in accordance with evolving care and support pathways.

Rationale: AHPs are committed to working in partnership with service users and their local communities to provide services which are responsive and relevant to what service users tell us matters to them most.

Service users can expect to receive equitable, quality care from AHPs and AHP service providers in accordance with evolving care and support pathways and which is responsive to their individual needs and what matters to them most.
