Faculty For Advanced Clinical Practice

The South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Faculty of Advanced Clinical Practice was formed in 2015 and is helping to bring about a coordinated and consistent approach to developing the clinical workforce.

The Faculty specifically focuses on the training and on-going professional development of Nurses, Pharmacists, Allied Health Professionals and others currently working in the NHS. The Faculty does this by offering them the opportunity to become Advanced Clinical Practitioners which means they work at a level which involves a greater degree complex decision making and is helping to provide a high-level workforce covering the South Yorkshire & Bassetlaw region.

The Faculty is also responsible for developing other emerging advanced clinical groups and introducing other such roles to the NHS as Physician Associates alleviating pressures created by the shortage of trained doctors coming into the NHS.
