AHPs Day celebration

14 October 2021

On Thursday 14 October we celebrated AHPs Day. This was an opportunity to acknowledge the fantastic work of our Allied Health Professionals at Kingston Hospital and thank them for everything they do in providing outstanding care to our patients. Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) are the third largest clinical workforce in the NHS, and AHPs Day is an annual opportunity for AHPs to come together and celebrate being part of the AHP family, while showcasing the impact they make to the delivery of high-quality care.

The ‘Kingston Hospital AHP Awards’ were launched, with Nic Kane (Chief Nurse of Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust), presenting the winners with their awards. Staff were asked to nominate their colleagues according to the eight categories below, and these nominations were then narrowed down (with some tough decisions!) by a judging panel:

•             “Caring” AHP award

•             “Safe” AHP award

•             “Responsible” AHP award

•             “Value each other” AHP award

•             “Inspiring” AHP award

•             Happiest AHP award

•             AHP Rising Star award

•             CEO of the Future award
