The consultation document was developed over 12 months and the process was led, on behalf of the MCP National Programme Board, co-jointly by the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of General Practitioners.





The consultation document was constructed to give the reader an introduction to the role, its potential scope of practice and an outline of the competences required to fulfil the role and broad scope of the intended curriculum. The intention of the document was to solicit opinion about these facets of the role and not necessarily scope the need for the role as this will be determined by local service and workforce planning across health and social care.

During the consultation period 1650 copies of the document were distributed and 258 responses were received.
