What is Cornwall Primary & Community Care Training Hub and how can we support you?

30th June, 2020

Training Hubs, formerly known as Community Education Provider Networks (CEPN) have a national workforce planning and development remit for Primary Care and work across an STP area. They bring together NHS organisations, community providers and local authorities in order to support collaboration.

The Cornwall Training Hub is hosted and delivered in partnership with Kernow Health CIC, working across the health and care system in Cornwall on a range of workforce development programmes, providing at scale support and development to primary care.
