“We are delighted to announce our National conference on 25th November and the Advancing Healthcare Awards Cymru (AHA Cymru) ceremony on 26 November 2021. We ask for your support in recognising and celebrating the achievements of all our professions throughout Wales.

Together allied health professionals and healthcare scientists offer a unique set of skills that drive transformation of health and care systems. Innovation, extended roles and scientific and clinical excellence have been at the forefront of the health and social care response to the Covid19 pandemic. Our theme for this conference is ‘Moving Forward Together’, with a focus on leadership, research and development, and digital transformation.

We look forward to sharing and celebrating how together the professions will help move the system from delivering traditional models of care into a new era of health and social care.’’
