Guide for Patients/Carers – Digital solutions to service delivery by Allied Health Professionals
Patients and their Carers can view videos and download information on a variety of services including foot care, children’s services, rehabilitation, nutrition, musculoskeletal and much more.
The AHP guide for patients and carers is useful in helping us to maintain a high quality and targeted level of AHP service delivery with a population that needs to stay safe and at home. It also helps to safeguard our workforce and support colleagues in isolation to continue to make a meaningful therapeutic contribution to their patients.
