Medical Assistants Pilot

The development of non-clinical roles within general practice has been identified as a priority as a result of the modelling work on primary care undertaken by the Healthy London Partnership within the five North Central London CCGs.

The five NCL CEPNs are working collectively to develop a pilot project with the benefits of economies of scale and of shared learning.

In order to support retention and offer career development, current members of staff will be recruited to the pilot to become Medical Assistants to support the workload of clinical teams within general practice. The CEPNs are in the process of recruiting host practices to the pilot and developing a competency framework for the role.
