The Greater Manchester AHP Faculty aim to deliver the greatest and fastest possible improvement to the health and wellbeing of the service users of Greater Manchester by ensuring there is effective AHP contribution to service transformation and delivery, whilst maintaining highest quality care.

AHPs are the third largest professional group in the NHS and, as highly skilled, autonomous, registered professionals, they form a key part of care delivery across a range of settings such as hospitals, community, housing, justice, education, private and voluntary services.

As part of our strategy, we aim to:

  • Inspire the GM population to embark on AHP careers to promote diversity and optimise retention to stimulate growth of the workforce
  • Ensure we have a sustainable supply of AHPs to deliver safe and effective care and for AHPs to provide solutions to other workforce challenges in the system
  • Empower AHPs to support the development and delivery of high-quality integrated care that is responsive and close to home
  • Scope GM AHP leadership and promote the benefits AHP leadership brings to organisations and the system
  • Ensure that AHPs are utilised effectively and to their maximum potential in GM.
