Allied Health Professions Australia estimates that the allied health workforce represents around one third of Australia’s healthcare workers. Allied health professionals work with people from all walks of life, making a difference to their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Here in the ACT, we have a range of initiatives to acknowledge the important work of our allied health professionals and to give them the recognition they deserve.
