Band 4 Associate Practitioners
Associate Practitioners are being introdcued throughout the country in health and social care services. Generally they are band 4 workers who recieve a range of extra training and development in order to take on extended duties. They will have increased skills and responsibilities compared with general support workers.

A large part of the rationale for the development of these roles is the concern that year on year we are seeing less registered professional workers coming through. A potential advantage of this development is that registered first-level practitioners and above may be freed up, whilst some of the more basic practical tasks can be taken on by the Associate Practitioners.
