Government Equalities Office funded the ‘Return to Practice’ programme to support Allied Health Professionals and Health Care Scientists who want to return to work. Delivered in partnership with Health Education England and Department for Health and Social Care, the programme operated between August 2017 and March 2019. Returners were given personal support and links to placement providers, so they could update their skills and knowledge, re-register with the Health and Care Professions Council, and ultimately secure employment. This report details the evaluation of the programme.
