Training Hubs are designed to be multidisciplinary networks of education and service providers working to support the development of the current and future general practice workforce.

The North-West Training Hubs foster collaborative working and learning across regions and disciplines. They support workforce planning and development, provide education programme coordination, and ensure quality of education, aiming to achieve a workforce excellently equiped to meet the present and future needs of our populations. At present the three regional Hubs focus on projects of both national and local educational and workforce priorities, namely: workforce placements, return to practice, apprenticeships, preceptorships, fellowships and others.
