The United Kingdom Central Council for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting has set up a task group to produce a framework for the level of specialist practice that will safeguard the public. The group is seeking evidence and opinion from a wide range of people involved in health and social care on this issue, and is focusing on the definition of and criteria for specialist practice.

We want to hear from employers, practitioners - not just from the professions that we regulate - consumers, purchasers, commissioners and educationalists.
