Today is World Allied Health Professionals Day. Allied Health Professionals are highly skilled health practitioners with specialised expertise in preventing, diagnosing and treating a range of conditions and illnesses. Allied Health is a term that includes specialties such as dietitians, social workers, occupational and play therapists, pharmacists, anaesthetic technicians, optometrists, psychologists, medical imaging technologists and many other clinical professions.
Working with all types of patients in a hospital setting as well as out in the community, these teams have a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of our communities. After a challenging few years we are very pleased to be able to sponsor prezzy cards to be drawn across the week to acknowledge and celebrate the good mahi of our hospital’s Allied Health specialist teams.
