The National Health Service is widely applauded as the highest quality healthcare system in the world (Grint and Holt 2011). However, there have been many changes to
healthcare provision in the United Kingdom (UK) in the last eight years. These included the introduction of the Health and Social Care Act (2012) in response to rising costs
and increasing clinical delivery demands on the National Health Service (NHS). Later the Mid Staffordshire Public Inquiry (HM Government 2013) identified failings in
leadership throughout the NHS. These failings were linked to leadership lacking clear definition across all professions within the healthcare team (HM Government 2013).
Within the nursing profession, the role of the Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) is seen as part of the solution to this leadership dilemma. This review considers the relevant research literature that explores leadership in the NHS, the role of the professional in the NHS, nursing identity and leadership and the dialogue between leadership and the role of the ANP.
