What is the Mid-Downs Training Hub?
Training Hubs are a national concept where a group of like-minded providers come together to collaborate on workforce retention, education and training. It creates an integrated and multi-disciplinary approach to workforce planning by developing our local workforce, which includes GP’s, nurses, pharmacists, health care support workers, practice managers, administrators and receptionists. It is a holistic approach to education, training and work placements within the NHS. Training Hubs hope to deliver strategic aspirations to improve the health of the population through the development of the current and future primary care workforce.
Why do we need a Training Hub?
At a time of unprecedented increased demand and significantly constrained resources, there are large gaps in workforce. The main aim of the network is to help provide the tools needed to improve the outcomes for people who access care locally. The GP Five Year Forward View (GPFV) signals the importance of Training Hubs taking forward training, development and support to General Practice in order to help stabilise, sustain and then transform models of care.
