In 2017, the National Health and Social Care Professions Office established a&nbsp;HSCP Clinical Leadership Representation&nbsp;work stream. Working closely with HSCP Professional Bodies, pathways were developed to select HSCP representatives to join national groups and furthermore, supports have been developed with the aim of enabling them to fully take up their clinical leadership representative roles. At the request of HSCP Professional Bodies, the National HSCP Office then became the central point through which requests for representatives are managed.
