Articulating the Role and Value of Nurses in General Practice – Phase 3

Project Director: Ed Ferrari
Project Duration: 2021-2022

Nurses working in general practice do a highly skilled and vital job. They provide advice and clinical care, take the lead in helping patients to manage their health conditions, and act as a focal point for other healthcare professionals within the practice. Their role and skills are critical to the delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan, and in making the new models of care function effectively in the context of tight budgets and increasing demand. This multi-phase project is designed to articulate the value of general practice nurses (GPNs), and to catalyse a step change in appreciation of the profession. Phase 3 is designed to test the prevalence across England of the value model of GP Nursing identified in Phases 1 and 2 of this project carried out for NHS England. This project will establish:

  1. How widely the nurses value model is seen across England.
  2. Which aspects come through most strongly and which are less recognised and delivered.
  3. Where nursing in general practice is not showing this model, what is happening instead.
  4. How the original nurses value model can be updated, and what this tells us about what NHSE can do to improve and enable the more effective delivery of value through general practice nursing.

The project team also includes Jim Clifford OBE (Sonnet Advisory & Impact) and Hilary Piercy (Department of Nursing and Midwifery, Sheffield Hallam University).
