An Advanced Clinical Practitioner is an experienced clinician who demonstrates expertise in their scope of practice. Advanced Clinical Practitioners manage defined episodes of clinical care independently, from beginning to end. They provide care and treatment from the time an individual first presents through to the end of the episode, which may include admission, referral or discharge, or care at home. They carry out their full range of duties in relation to individuals physical and mental healthcare and in acute, primary, urgent, and emergency settings (including hospitals, general practice, individuals homes, schools and prisons, and in the public, independent, private and charity sectors). They combine expert clinical skills with research, education and clinical leadership within their scope of practice.
Advanced Clinical Practitioners work innovatively on a one-to-one basis with individuals as well as part of a wider team. They work as part of the wider health and social care team and across traditional professional boundaries in health and social care.
