Your scope of practice is the limit of your knowledge, skills and experience and is made up of the activities you carry out within your professional role
As a health and care professional, you must keep within your scope of practice at all times to ensure you are practising safely, lawfully and effectively. This is likely to change over time as your knowledge, skills and experience develop.
The pages below provide information and advice on how we define scope of practice, as well as particular areas of practice that may make up your scope of practice. This will be added to over time, as we produce more advice and resources.
