Nursing and AHPs

About this theme

This theme covers topics relating to developing the role and contribution of nurses and Allied Health Professionals in the delivery and leadership of an effective healthcare system in the UK. Many of our Fellows have undertaken projects addressing this over the years including as part of our recent programme of Fellowships on nursing and AHPs, developed in partnership with The Burdett Trust for Nursing, which ran during 2017-2019.
