  • Broadening the staff pool through the development of professional groups into Advance Clinical/Nurse Practitioners (ACPs)
  • Creating a well-educated, clinically competent and stable workforce to ensure high quality care for patients 24 hours a day through 8 qualified ACPs
  • Developing opportunities for professional development and career progression for healthcare professionals who wish to remain in a clinical setting and therefore attracting more practitioners to prevent a reliance on locum cover
  • Meeting workforce demand by employing additional ACPs who can support emergency department teams
