Condensed ARRS

Please download the document below for a condensed version of the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) and information on the benefits of clinical supervision.

FCP Roadmap Supervision slides

Produced by Simon Ingram (Assessment and Supervision Lead for Advanced Practice in Primary Care, HEE), this slide deck and accompanying set of FAQs cover the supervision process for first contact practitioners.

HEE Roadmaps & ARRS

If you are employed under the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS), please note that you currently have a deadline of April 2022 to complete stages 1 & 2 of HEE’s Roadmap to Practice to enable drawing down of funding.

If you are not employed under ARRS, then you do not have this deadline. It is beneficial to complete them, however, if you want to be on the Centre for Advancing Practice Directory — you will need to have gone through stages 1 & 2 before moving on to stage 3 and advanced clinical practice.

Both stages can be completed in general practice and signed off by a verified clinical roadmap supervisor, or you can attend a taught route. You will still need to have evidence of clinical supervision by a roadmap supervisor to ensure competency, though.

HEE Roadmap to Practice & FAQs

NEW: Recruiting paramedic practitioners through the ARRS

As of April 2021, PCNs can recruit paramedics through the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS).

NHS Confederation have produced a guide explaining what the ARRS is and how it works, in addition to how paramedics can support:

  • Population health management via on-the-day demand and access with hear-and-treat telephone triage
  • Treatment of minor ailments and injuries
  • Medicines supply via patient group directions (PGDs)
