Guide to Paramedic FCPs in Primary Care for GP Employers, Practice Managers and PCN Leaders

Last updated Monday 7th February 2022

In recent years a variety of clinicians have been doing work previously done by GPs. The numbers have increased dramatically recently as established nurses, pharmacist and paramedics in practices have been joined by physiotherapists and other new roles under the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS).

With this increase has come greater national guidance and requirements around what roles these professionals can undertake, what training and competencies they need, and what ongoing support and supervision they require to work as First Contact or Advanced Clinical Practitioners (FCP/ACP).

This guide has been compiled to assist GP employers, practice managers and PCN leaders in understanding how to make the most of these varied clinicians and how to give them the conditions, support and supervision required.
