What is a Primary (and Community) Care Training Hub?

Training Hubs are networks of education and service providers (NHS and non-NHS) based in the community. They are tasked with increasing capacity for future workforce training in the community and the development of the current and future workforce around the needs of a regionally defined population.

Training hubs are designed to meet the educational needs of the multi-disciplinary primary care team, and bring together NHS organisations, community providers and local authorities.

Training hubs are expected to be an essential vehicle of workforce transformation due to their ability to engage multiple general practice organisations and provide consistent education and workforce planning support.
