The South Yorkshire Faculty of ACP invite you to a workforce event to promote training of the Advanced Clinical Practitioner role. The event will take place on the 14 December 2023 between 10:00 – 2:00 in the 1889 Suite at Sheffield United Football Club, Sheffield.

Advanced practitioners (also commonly referred to as advanced clinical practitioners, or ACPs) can be found across a range of professional backgrounds and settings including but not limited to nursing, pharmacy, paramedics, other allied health professions, and midwifery.

The event will be an ideal opportunity for aspiring ACPs, employers and universities to network and understand more about the training of ACPs and how the role contributes to the improvement of quality patient care.

Alongside the networking opportunities, informal seminars will be delivered focusing on the commissioning of training posts, trainee experience during training, supervision, ePortfolio and life post qualifying.

The South Yorkshire Physician Associate Lead, Ria Agarwal will be in attendance and available to support with all PA related queries.

The event is completely free to attend and will include refreshments and festive mince pies!
