Allied Health Professionals are natural leaders of rehabilitation and through their expertise, resourcefulness and solutions-based approach, Wales can develop the very best rehabilitation services in the world.
Rehabilitation, reablement and recovery can take place in a variety of settings and will shift from restorative to compensatory and adaptive approaches over time.
With partners across Wales, we have developed a resource based on the principles of the rehabilitation guidance and framework published by Welsh Government in 2020.
Our ‘Rehabilitation is everybody’s business’ resource' is designed to help health and social care professionals to work together in a systems-wide approach to supporting people with rehabilitation needs; whenever and wherever they meet them.
