Developing and retaining the Advanced Practice workforce is a strategic priority for the NHS. The NHS Long-Term People Plan recognises the potential of advanced level practitioners meeting short term and long-term workforce demands; whilst the NHS Interim People Plan is heavily supportive of scaling up and delivering new roles and models of advanced level practice.
Remote, Rural and Humanitarian Healthcare Capabilities Framework
We are working in partnership with The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Faculty of Remote, Rural and Humanitarian Healthcare to develop a capabilities framework. The Faculty was established in response to the need identified within both industry and the public health arena to define, review and set standards of competence for organisations as well as medical and non-medical personnel delivering healthcare in remote and rural environments.
Primary Care & General Practice Nursing Career & Core Capabilities Framework
The Primary Care and General Practice Nursing Career and Core Capabilities Framework will support Health Education England to achieve the aims of the ten-point action plan. The Framework provides a standard and greater clarity on the scope of practice for nurses working within primary care and general practice settings.
