£6 million boost to NHS careers

50,000 NHS and social services staff including physiotherapists, paramedics and radiographers will benefit from a new strategy aimed at improving their status, training, pay and career opportunities.

Announcing the strategy, health minister Lord Philip Hunt said, “The role of these key professionals has often been undervalued or neglected.”

The strategy, called Meeting the Challenge: A Strategy for the Allied Health Professions, will be supported by £6 million of new money for education and leadership development initiatives.
