Welcome to the Practice Management Hub

We understand that managing a practice entails an enormous range of responsibilities and interests and we are building a bank of resources to support you with education, training, and information on new workforce initiatives and funding. We hope you’ll find something useful below, and if you’re looking for something specific that’s not listed then please get in touch via the ‘Contact Us’ tab or email us at candptraininghub@nhs.net

Kickstart Scheme

The PMA KICKSTART Scheme is an approved Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) Employer Gateway Scheme, delivered UK-wide, to provide a valuable and talent-rich resource to GP Practices – especially relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic.


The Government Kickstart Scheme provides funding to employers to create new job placements for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment. You can find more information the Gov.uk website.



Apprenticeships enable new and existing staff to train on the job, through a work-based training programme that incorporates skills development, technical knowledge and practical experience, while getting paid. They can offer practices a cost-effective way to attract and develop a more diverse, skilled, flexible and motivated workforce.


New Roles and Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS)

The Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS), introduced in the 2019 GP Contract, is funding an unprecedented growth in the workforce, including the introduction of 14 new roles into Primary Care. CPTH is supporting Cambridgeshire & Peterborough practices to introduce, support, embed and train these new roles.


The Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) supports practices financially to introduce the new roles. Full details of how the scheme works can be found in the most recent GP Contract Update, via the NHS website.
