NHS osteopaths highly commended at CAHPO Awards
The NHS osteopaths of the Sussex MSK partnership have been highly commended for workforce transformation at the prestigious national Chief Allied Health Professions Officer (CAHPO) National Awards.
On behalf of osteopaths across the UK, we would like to extend huge congratulations to the Sussex MSK partnership and the osteopaths who are part of the team.
The award is presented to those organisations that demonstrate transformation through innovation in AHP workforce supply. This can include or be from pre-registration through to post programmes settings e.g., new ways of offering work experience, return to practice, advance practice and international recruitment. Applications need to demonstrate how the delivery of their work has increased the expansion of learning opportunities for current and future staff and will provide a sustainable flow of a future workforce.
