Trust hosts its first ever AHP Community of Practice Forum

October 17, 2023

 

Our Trust held its first ever AHP Community of Practice Forum yesterday (Monday 16 October) at Churchdown Community Centre.

Hosted by Chief Allied Health Professional Sarah Birmingham, the event was well attended by Allied Health Professionals, Health and Exercise Practitioners and AHP Support Workers working across the Trust in clinical, leadership, educational and management roles.

Attendees enjoyed talks from a number of speakers, as well as a series of ‘lightening talks’ from colleagues working in various services and teams across the Trust.

In the weeks and months leading up to the forum, colleagues were asked to reflect on the last 12 months and nominate colleagues for a number of awards, which were presented by Sarah Birmingham at the end of the morning’s proceedings.

About the AHP Community of Practice

The AHP Community of Practice is a space where AHPs and AHP Support Workers can connect, share updates and communications, and take time to showcase good practice and celebrate their achievements and successes.

The Community of Practice is open to all AHPs, Health and Exercise Practitioners and AHP Support Workers working in the Trust in clinical, leadership, educational and management roles.
