ACP in Primary Care Scheme Expansion

Health Education England (HEE) North outlined further opportunities for staff development in primary care. In response to the rising demand for the development of Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs) in Primary Care, Health Education England North has increased the number of trainee ACP posts they are able to support from Practices. In this current financial year HEE North has made available budget to support 120 new trainee ACPs in Primary Care across Yorkshire & Humber.

This support amounts to:

  • Salary Support – £18,000 per annum per post for a maximum of 2 years to cover the training period.
  • MSc – HEE North will pay course fees directly to the chosen university that trainee ACPs attend so they can complete their full MSc award.

Please see the attached letter regarding HEE North ACP offer to primary care. Any interested practices should apply direct to the university of choice (as suggested in the letter).
