Job Description

Equal Opportunities Form

The All-Party Parliamentary Health Group (APHG)

The APHG is a cross-party forum that brings together parliamentarians and senior health leaders to discuss key issues on the NHS, health reform and future trends. It is comprised of members of all political parties, providing information with balance and impartiality. It was established almost two decades ago.

To inform better policy making the Group:

  • Provides a forum for MPs and Peers to hear directly from senior health leaders and experts: to better understand health policy and scrutinise the system as necessary.
  • Informs and educates stakeholders on longer term developments in health.
  • Disseminates the latest health information from Parliament.

The APHG is one of the most active All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) in Parliament and works closely with distinguished health and policy experts. We run a busy programme of events and provide expert monitoring for stakeholders.

It focuses on cross-cutting issues and the NHS reform agenda. It is involved where the conversation is and does not drive it.
