Scottish Stroke AHP Forum

The Scottish Stroke AHP Forum’s (SSAHPF) main aim is to promote the highest quality of rehabilitation for people with stroke.

Unfortunately in light of the exceptional circumstances with Covid-19 we have taken the decision to postpone the 2020 annual SSAHP conference until later in the year. A new date is still to be confirmed so continue to check the SSAHP website for conference updates.

The Scottish Stroke AHP Forum (SSAHPF) is for AHPs, AHP support staff and AHP students with an interest in stroke working in Scotland.

The Scottish Stroke AHP Forum’s (SSAHPF) main aim is to promote the highest quality of rehabilitation for people with stroke.

This is achieved by playing an active part in influencing AHP developments and services at local and national levels. The forum also participates and promotes research in clinical stroke rehabilitation. This helps to improve life after stroke for all stroke patients, their families and carers.
