Supporting workforce planning

Training Hubs are commissioned to:

  • Deliver further development and expansion of placement capacity.
  • Provide support for workforce planning at STP / ICS Level.
  • Support the recruitment of primary care workforce by providing multi-professional training and education.
  • Help embed ‘new roles’ within primary care.
  • Support the retention of the primary care workforce across all key transitions.
  • Enable workforce planning intentions and placement co-ordination through management of clinical placement tariffs.

A new partnership

To secure and retain the Training Hub contract for local delivery, the two existing Training Hubs in Coventry and Warwickshire merged in October 2020.

A new organisation, Coventry & Warwickshire Integrated Primary Care was established to host this contract, in partnership between Coventry & Rugby GP Alliance and SWGP Federation.

This enables us to offer a broad range of clinical and non-clinical training, and ensure the voice of primary care is being heard in response to workforce planning and funding opportunities.

IPC - Coventry & Warwickshire Integrated Primary Care

The new Coventry & Warwickshire Training Hub supports workforce planning by:

  • Working with system partners.
  • Representing primary care at regular and ad hoc workforce meetings.
  • Submitting NWRS data quarterly on behalf of PCNs.
  • Supporting data collation and upward reporting of PCN workforce plans.
  • Bidding for and securing funding for training, including:
    • Significant funding to deliver a GPN-ST pilot programme, resulting in six new GP nurses commencing at practices and Birmingham City University.
    • Funding through the Local Workforce Advisory Board to deliver a remote Independent Prescribing pilot group.
    • Places for ACP and GPN Fundamentals through the HEE system receiving and benefiting from thousands of pounds funding for our nurses.
