The aim of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Training Hub (CPTH) is to support the delivery of a primary care workforce capable of meeting the needs of our local population’s health and improve clinical outcomes. This will be achieved through the recruitment of new staff into General Practice; the retention of existing staff through development, training and up-skilling and development of new roles within the primary care health community.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Training Hub, developed initially as a Community Education Provider Network (CEPN), links closely with our local GP federations and the CCG. Representatives from both of these bodies and additional clinical advisor roles form part of our steering group.
The CPTH provides training, education and workforce support across Cambridgeshire.
In the future, primary care will need a new system of coherent, locally-managed but quality-assured educational governance that encompasses all training and education in primary care. The establishment of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Training Hub in 2017 was the start of that process, ensuring that training, education, development and workforce promotion is identified and provided locally, by local practitioners.
