We already have a HCA, why do we need more?

Retirement statistics show that there will be 33% less nurses over the next few years – HCAs can relieve some of the pressure on already stretched nursing teams.

With the introduction of the Nurse Associate role and the Nurse Apprenticeship pathway, HCAs are potentially your future nursing workforce.

HCAs can generate income in the practice by running clinics and managing calls/ recalls of targeted patient groups. They are often local people who have a vested interest in their communities and therefore offer a great return on your investment.
