THE work of Allied Health Professionals across Dumfries and Galloway was highlighted as part of the fourth national AHP Day.

They are a diverse group of practitioners who apply their expertise to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate people of all ages across health, education and social care.

Joan Pollard is the region’s director of Allied Health Professions, and she said: “I would like to invite everyone to pause for a minute and give thought and recognition to the incredible work being carried out by our extremely dedicated Allied Health Professionals.

“Day in, day out, they play a fundamental role in ensuring the health and welfare of our region’s population, using expertise and knowledge across a wide range of areas to support people to live health, active and independent lives.

“The pandemic has impacted on all of us, and within our extremely stretched health and social care system AHPs have demonstrated incredible resilience in managing the huge pressures brought to bear on their working lives.

“I would like to thank each and every one of them for the dedication and commitment they have demonstrated in helping people.”

Allied Health Professionals within Dumfries and Galloway comprise podiatrists, dieticians, occupational therapists, orthotists, paramedics, orthoptists, physiotherapists, diagnostic radiographers, and speech and language therapists.
