regulate assistant practitoners

Additional Information

The review, carried out by the National Nursing Research Unit for the Nursing and Midwifery Council, says there are strong patient safety grounds for regulating all healthcare assistants.

But the report authors said there was a particularly “urgent need” to regulate HCAs working in band 4 assistant practitioner roles as they are used as a “substitute” for nurses rather than as a supporting and supervised role, as originally intended.
