Macmillan AHP Competence Framework

The Macmillan Allied Health Professions Competence Framework (MAHPCF) is the first competence framework for UK Allied Health Professionals (AHP's) working with people affected by cancer


The framework is designed to support managers, teams and individuals by identifying competences that apply to the majority of AHPs working with people affected by cancer. It will assist individuals and organisations to use competence to support recruitment, workforce planning and development, career progression and role design. 

This document is designed for use by and with registered AHPs including; arts therapists, dietitians, drama therapists, music therapists, occupational therapists, orthoptists, paramedics, physiotherapists, podiatrists, prosthetists and orthotists, radiographers (therapeutic and diagnostic) and speech and language therapists.

There’s also a table to help AHPs to:

  • Highlight the competences they wish to focus on
  • Record how these link to appraisals/personal development reviews
  • Describe evidence to demonstrate achievement of the competences chosen

Record how the activities link to the Health and Care Professions CPD standards
