The NHS long term plan supports the delivery of integrated care and the formation of primary care networks. Within those networks practices may choose to offer extended services by a GP or other members of staff with extended roles.

Many GPs are already involved in delivering local allergy services around the country in different contexts including community services or attached to specialist units,  and much has been learnt from examples of best practice. All those involved in the delivery of care for patients with allergies recognise the need to ensure that General Practioners with an Extended Role (GPwER) are suitably qualified, with demonstrable competences, training and experience. These factors underpin the delivery of safe, high-quality care.

To facilitate this BSACI have developed the GP with extended role (GPWER) framework, which contains key elements of competencies for GPs working in Allergy. The framework has been endorsed by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and describes different models of care and information about the training, accreditation and assessment processes to support the accreditation of GPwER in Allergy Care.
