What are Training Hubs?
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 approach by developing our local workforce, which includes GP’s, nurses, pharmacists, health care support workers, practice managers, administrators and receptionists. Training Hubs ultimately hope to improve the health of the population through their collaborative approach.
Why do we need a Training Hub?
With an increase in demand coinciding with significantly constrained resources, there are large gaps in the workforce. The main aim of the network is to help provide the tools needed to improve the outcomes for people who access care locally.
