Become a virtual allied health professional for the day

Health Education England has developed a series of high-tech films to give striking, real-life insights into the work of four vital allied health professions (AHPs).

The films use specialist 360-degree cameras to immerse the viewer alongside patients and staff working in podiatry, therapautic radiography, prosthetics and orthotics, and orthoptics. They capture day-to-day interactions from diagnosis through to treatment. When watched through a virtual-reality headset, viewers become part of the scene, giving them a first-hand flavour of working in hospital and community settings.
