HCA standards for vaccine administration updated as role expands


It's high time we had some national guidelines so that we knew what IS the role of an HCA (Band 3 in my employing authority) and AP (Band 4). It's also high time the media caught up with the idea that there is such a thing as an Assistant Practitioner grade..... I'm sure training in anaphylaxis would also be part of the preparation for anyone, with any qualification, administering injections.
