The seminar was chaired by Judi Rhys, Non-Executive Director at Public Health Wales.  Judi welcomed everyone to the event and spoke about her understanding of Allied Health Professionals and of her personal experiences with several services.

The day was opened by Dr Gill Richardson, Assistant Director of Policy, Research and International Development within Public Health Wales.  Gill spoke about the role of Allied Health Professionals and how they are an important part of Public Health.

This was followed by two presentations, Judith John – Welsh Therapy Advisory Committee and Linda Hindle – Allied Health Professions Lead, National Engagement Lead Police, Fire and Ambulance Services within Public Health England.

Linda presented on the ‘Evidence and Impact of Allied Health Professions Contribution to Public Health’.  Linda shared information on the role and successes of Allied Health Professions in England and what has contributed to those successes.
