The NHS Scotland Academy will work with the Scottish Government and partners to support the National Treatment Centres Programme (NTC) through accelerated workforce development. It is estimated that an additional 1,500 roles will be delivered through this project, supporting workforce needs within NHSScotland and broader health and social care.
In collaboration with NHS Boards across Scotland, the Anaesthetic Assistant Programme (AAP) offers development and career opportunities to learners preparing for the role of anaesthetic assistant.
Building on the existing Core Competence Framework for Anaesthetic Assistants will provide additional learning in a range of areas, including immersive simulation. Through high quality training and education, learners will complete the programme ready to join the theatre workforce and deliver safe and patient-centred care.
