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.

New Roles in Primary Care
14 new roles have been 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.
Personalised care represents a new relationship between people, professionals and the system. Working closely with partners, the NHS will roll out personalised care to reach 2.5 million people by 2023/24 and then aim to double that again within a decade.
