Introducing the National Health Services Directory

AHPA continues to work with Healthdirect Australia and our association members to improve the presence of allied health practitioners in the National Health Services Directory (NHSD). The directory is a key source of information to assist health professionals seeking other health professionals to refer patients to. It also provides an important source of information for people in the community looking for a health service. We encourage you to find out more and to register your practice.

Please click here for an overview of the NHSD or read the AHPA NHSD information sheet.

Strategic Plan for the Allied Health Sector 
During 2015, allied health professionals, general practitioners and public health organisations came together for a series of ‘Strategic Thinking of Allied Health Services in Primary Care’ workshops. Those workshops resulted in the Strategic Plan for the Allied Health Sector document, a great overview of the ideas, views and suggestions of the organisations involved in the development of this document.
