The future heralds a new emerging – and enhanced role for practice nurses as part of the Government’s healthcare agenda for the next decade. The New GP contract have an effect on many aspects of the practices role. The CPHVA is committed to campaigning for practice nurses to have equal pay and employment conditions.
Devolution in the UK means that each constituent country is developing its own healthcare policy. This has implications for practice nurses and the CPHVA makes representations to ensure that the practice nurse role is properly understood and valued.
