Acute Care Practitioners
Acute Care practitioners are Advanced Clinical Practitioners. They can come from a range of professional backgrounds such as Nursing, Pharmacy and Paramedical.
Advanced Practitioners are educated to Master’s level or likely working towards this.
Advanced Practitioners are Independent Prescribers. They work autonomously and have many years’ experiences during which they have developed their skills and knowledge to take on expanded roles and manage your care. They can assess the patient, investigate, diagnose, treat and undertake any onward referral necessary in your care journey.

Non-Registered Nursing Staff
Non-registered Nursing staff who assist in patient care and Practice-related duties as directed by and under the supervision of a Registered Healthcare Professional (including Lead Practice Nurse, Practice Manager, and the GPs). Healthcare Support Workers work collaboratively with the General Practice team to meet the needs of patients, and provide essential task-orientated services like taking blood samples (phlebotomy), processing specimens, performing ECGs (to measure heart function), spirometry (to measure lung function). They play a crucial role in supporting the Clinical Team.

Care co-ordinators help to co-ordinate and navigate care across the health and care system, helping people make the right connections, with the right teams at the right time. They can support people to become more active in their own health and care and are skilled in assessing people’s changing needs. Care co-ordinators are effective in bringing together multidisciplinary teams to support people’s complex health and care needs.
They can be an effective intervention in supporting people to stay well particularly those with long term conditions, multiple long-term conditions, and people living with or at risk of frailty.
