This is a discussion with Garry Swann. Garry is the Consultant nurse lead in the Emergency Department at the Heart of England NHS Trust and is one of the main driving forces behind the development of the Advanced Clinical Practitioner roles at this trust. This is an innovative way of solving some of the medical staffing and capacity issues that are problematic in the NHS at the current time. Garry talks about some of the issues involved and how he has tried to solve them.
It looks like there are some interesting times ahead in the trust….
The link below is to the TED talk I mention in the podcast. This is a very interesting presentation and raises some great points.
