Any Qualified Provider
The aim of AQP, a national scheme, is to extend choice; enabling patients who are referred by their GP for a particular community service to choose, where appropriate, from a range of qualified providers and select the one that best meets their needs.
Earlier this year, following a local consultation with the public, other stakeholders and the emerging Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), the first three services were chosen from a national list for extending patient choice of provider.
The AQP services available in Hampshire, Southampton and Portsmouth are:
- Adult hearing services (for over 55s)
- Musculoskeletal services for back and neck pain – ‘MSK’ (for adults)
- Continence Services for Adults and Children
Please follow the link to NHS.net for further explanation regarding AQP.
