Developing the primary care workforce

Published: 1 November, 2014

The NHS Confederation argues that workforce planning and modelling assumptions in primary care need to incorporate new, emerging and more sustainable models of primary care. They make a series of recommendations which impact on training and CPD:

  • Focus the approach to workforce planning, and the education and training strategy beyond, around achieving population health outcomes
  • ensure that the health and social care workforce is trained in self-care and self-management.
  • Focus on and support the development of alternative medical roles in general practice, such as physicians’ assistants.
  • Develop the GP training curriculum to include health economics
  • Create more opportunities for inter-professional learning
