Scrapping the practice nurse lead/adviser role in England would be 'costly and short-sighted', according to research by Independent Nurse's sister title Practice Nursing.
PCTs will be abolished in April but some clinical commissioning groups do not plan to retain the role, making it more difficult to communicate reforms and clinical developments to practice nurses.
Practice Nursing's survey shows 95 per cent of practice nurses want this role to continue.
