View Full Version : Practice Nurse/Nurse Practitioner - MDU definition

12-02-2008, 11:24 AM
We have group membership of the MDU and our Practice nurses have historically been covered at no extra charge through the scheme. A recently-recruited PN has just applied for inclusion however and has been informed that her role is "extended" and that there will be a charge for cover as a nurse practitioner. As her job role is no different to that of our other Practice Nurses we are loathe to pay this, particularly as the Practice already pays the RCN subs for all the nurses.
Has anyone else come across this situation and, if so, how have you handled it? Our view is to simply remove all the nurses from the scheme but we don't want to "rock the boat." Any advice appreciated, thanks
