It is the British Arm of ATSEF (The European Federation of Turkish Healthcare Professionals) and together with the equivalent associations in Germany, France, Austria, Holland and Cyprus ATSEF has recently been registered in Berlin. ATHPA was initiated by the UK ATSEF Official Dr. Muge Herrewegh-Trak, who campaigned diligently for 10 years and is committed to improve the positions of Turkish speaking healthcare professionals and patients in Europe. ATHPA is a young organisation, but has been very active on various fronts, such as supporting and guiding healthcare professionals with diplomas from Turkey, organising health advice days and seminars for the Turkish population, compiling a Turkish healthcare professional’s directory, producing patient information leaflets and promoting research. ATHPA has been supported by the T.C. London Embassy and the Consulate, as well as Baroness Meral Hussein-Ece. ATHPA invites healthcare professionals from all backgrounds to work together to achieve these goals.
