General Practice Management Ambassador
In my role as General Practice Management Ambassador I am here to guide and support Practice and PCN Managers and their teams, looking for ways for us to be able to build on recruitment and retention in Primary Care.
Background: I changed career at the age of 39 and started working as a part time receptionist in my local practice. I have now been working in the NHS for twenty years and have been a practice manager for eleven years. I have managed one practice for the last ten years, but alongside this I have also managed many other practices and provided support and training to practice managers new to primary care.
I hope to be in contact with you all but please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or requests for support – email@example.com
GP Trainer Funding
We are delighted to have new GP Trainer expansion funding available to support GPs to become trainers. We are also offering funding to support Practices in becoming Training Practices.
General Practice Fellowship
The General Practice Fellowship is an NHS England funded 2-year programme of financial and practical support for practices to help recruit and develop newly qualified GP and Nurses in Primary Care.
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.
Improving Staff Retention
The retention team has worked closely with systems to support them to improve staff experience, retain our NHS people locally and undertake a range of actions to help staff feel valued, through the themes in Our People Promise
Placements in Primary Care
General Practice is particularly suited to supporting the development of healthcare students due to the wide range of learning opportunities and types of patient contact that take place in this clinical setting. It is also a great setting to support the development of staff and provide opportunities to upskill through many programmes.

Becoming a UK Visa Sponsorship Practice
You need a sponsorship licence to employ someone to work for you from outside the UK. Gaining the right to be a UK visa sponsoring practice has many advantages and could form an important part of your general practice workforce planning.
New Roles in Primary Care
14 new roles are being introduced into Primary Care with funding support from the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS), introduced in the 2019 GP Contract. CPTH is supporting Cambridgeshire & Peterborough practices to introduce, support, embed and train these new roles.
