Training Hubs

“Primary and Community Care Training Hubs are vital to our future education and training plans. Training Hubs are well placed to support the ambitions and workforce needed for Primary Care Networks and Integrated Care Systems.”
— Prof Simon Gregory, Deputy Medical Director for Primary and Integrated Care,

Primary and Community Care Training Hubs are networks of education and service providers (NHS and non-NHS) based in the community. They aim to provide an opportunity to meet the educational needs of the multi-disciplinary primary care team, bringing together NHS organisations, community, local authorities and education establishments.  Training Hubs will be a key resource for Primary Care Networks, delivering ‘place-based’ education, training and workforce development of the wider NHS primary care workforce at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and at all stages of a NHS professional’s career in primary care.

The New Roles in Primary Care National Toolkit has been developed to enable Training Hubs to support workforce planning collaboratively with Primary Care Networks (PCNs) towards the development of the Primary Care workforce, as outlined in the GP Contract. The Toolkit outlines the roles, training and funding opportunities for all new roles in Primary Care.
