This guide aims to improve the understanding of organisations and recruiting managers in the recruitment of international Allied Health Professional (AHP’s) through highlighting the differences in process and registration, recognising the challenges faced by the 14 AHP professions and by providing case studies to illustrate good practice approaches.
This is a complex subject area to compress into a useful guide and so hyperlinks are included throughout to support more detailed understanding of relevant areas. Additional complexity is recognised relating to the changing immigration rules and COVID-19 pandemic with further links to national webpages where updates to national policy and health guidance will be accessible following the publication of this guide.
It is one of a series of focused online resources produced by Health Education England for NHS organisations to support the national AHP work programme. This aims to ensure an essential supply of AHPs, maximise their contribution and support the development of the AHP workforce.
