The impact of COVID-19 on the future of advanced and consultant practice

Analysis of the online workshop to consider the impact of COVID-19 upon and the implications for the future of advanced and consultant practice.

In May 2020, Health Education England (HEE) commissioned a two-week, crowdsourcing, online workshop to generate insight into the lived experiences of advanced and consultant practitioners during the COVID-19 pandemic. HEE undertook a simple thematic analysis of the anonymised qualitative data. 


The workshop illustrated that 85% of advanced practitioners reported feeling that they had made a useful contribution to the response to COVID 19, 48% felt that their skills had been fully utilised, with only 9% feel that their skills had not been used. This does, however, mean that 52% could have been enabled to offer more of their skills to the response.
