Applications are also welcome from AHPs working in the third sector, further and higher education where they are submitted in partnership with NHS AHP colleagues and where there is anticipated benefit to NHS service users and staff.

For this opening the Careers Fellowship scheme will focus on the Active and Independent Living Improvement Programme (AILIP).  This means that applications should demonstrate how they contribute to AILIP.
