Health Education England has released information on how you can apply for significant backfill funding to support your organisation to create new Advanced Clinical Practitioner trainee positions.

This can include bringing new recruits into your organisation or to support existing nurses, paramedics, physios and AHPs to develop new skills and competencies to advance their practice.

Full details of the funding available is outlined in the attached ‘ACP Principles 20-21’ document on page 3. 

It appears this could be worth as much as £17,000 per year as salary support, with additional £2,000 funding should you choose an apprenticeship programme for your trainees development.
