About Us

NHS Education for Scotland is leading the Effective Practitioner initiative which is a commitment in Scotland to support the large group of Nurses, Midwives and Allied Health Professionals (NMAHP) practitioners at Level 5 and 6 of the Career Framework for Health. It recognises and values the critical role this group of staff play in the day-to-day running of NHS Scotland.

There are around 48,000 nurses, midwives and allied health professionals at levels 5 and 6 of the Career Framework for Health with wide-ranging experience, knowledge, skills and career aspirations. The initiative aims to fill a gap, by providing this group of staff with access to flexible resources to assist them to remain up to date, provide evidence-based care, be aware of their accountability and responsibility, and their role within the wider healthcare team. It is envisaged that the Effective Practitioner initiative will simultaneously assist staff in their continuing professional development, revalidation and Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF) Personal Development Plans (PDP).
