THE AHP FACULTY
What is the AHP Faculty?
The Nottinghamshire Allied Health Professions (AHP) Faculty is a group of health, social care, education and training providers that formally work together across the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System (ICS). The AHP Faculty reports to the ICS AHP Cabinet.
Our aim is to facilitate system-wide working across the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System - wherever AHPs are to be found.
The AHP Faculty works collaboratively to ensure the pipeline of AHP professionals continues to thrive and grow - we do this by focusing on our AHP workforce through partnerships and projects.

Our partners include Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, Nottingham CityCare, Sherwood Forest Healthcare Trust, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, City and County Councils, Primary Care Networks, GP practices, private, independent and voluntary organisations, careers and training hubs and our local universities who train AHPs – so that we can listen, learn and work strategically together to support our workforce of AHPs in Nottinghamshire.
