POLICY: Nurse Innovators - Case Study - Confidence and competence working hand in hand

01 July 2015
Rigorous training is the key to the success of the advanced nurse practitioner service that is running out-of-hours services across Grampian, and leading the way internationally. Linda Harper is in charge of the nurse-led out-of-hours service developed by NHS Grampian. The Grampian Medical Emergency Department (GMED) service operates from the new emergency care centre on Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s Foresterhill site. There, in a dedicated corridor adjacent to A&E, the GMED team manages growing numbers of patients who present for care out-of-hours.
