Advanced Clinical Practitioners
Advanced Clinical Practitioners are one of the new Additional Roles the NHS is implementing - across Rushcliffe they work alongside GP teams assessing and treating patients independently.
Advanced Clinical Practitioners are registered clinicians, qualified to a Post graduate level but have come from a paramedic or nursing background rather than medical school.
Advanced Clinical Practitioners are experienced clinicians that work as part of GP teams in surgeries in Rushcliffe assessing and treating patients independently.
Seeing an ACP is very similar to seeing a GP as they will assess patients, order and interpret test results and can prescribe medications.
There are some limitations to what medications ACPs can prescribe depending on their professional registration.
There may also be certain examinations that an ACP would not perform depending on their background and training.
